HC Deb 12 February 1957 vol 564 cc170-1W
Mr. Hayman

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Education how many pupils there were in Redruth County Secondary Grammar School at the latest convenient date; how many washbasins and W.C.'s, and what footage of urinal space are available for them; and what provision in each of these three categories are specified in his Department's latest building regulations for a grammar school to accommodate this number of pupils.

Sir E. Boyle

The regulations prescribe 28 wash basins and 28 closets and urinal stalls, including at least 10 closets, for a school of this size. There were 417 pupils in January, 1956. There are 13 wash basins, 6 water closets, and about 16 feet of urinal space. The Cornwall Local Education Authority are considering improvements to this school in 1957–58.
