HC Deb 05 December 1957 vol 579 cc65-7W
24. Mr. Chapman

asked the Minister of Education what advice was given to the King Edward School, Birmingham, about the Governors' plans to spend £17,000 on a new house for its chief master; what reasons were given for rejecting a nearby house offered for sale

subjects; and how these figures compare with those for 1955–56, and 1956–57.

Sir E. Boyle

The following is the information:

to the Governors; and what accommodation is to be provided in the house as now planned.

Sir E. Boyle

My right hon. Friend has given no advice to the Governors of the School, since none of the expenditure will be derived either directly or indirectly from rates or grant.

25. Mr. Chapman

asked the Minister of Education whether, in view of the postponement, in the present economic crisis, of many projects of national importance, needed by the community as a whole, he will advise the Governors of King Edward School, Birmingham, to postpone their plans for a new house for the chief master.

Sir E. Boyle
