§ MR. WILLIAM NICHOLSON (Hampshire, Petersfield)
To ask the President of the Board of Education if, in view of the probable effect of the proposals of the Education Bill in single-school areas, the Education Department is prepared, pending definite legislation, to follow the precedent of last Session, by relieving trustees and managers of denominational schools in such areas from pressure in respect of expensive and structural improvements in their schools.
§ (Answered by Mr. Runciman.) I cannot undertake to lay down any general rule. Each case will be considered on its merits having regard to the urgency and importance of the alterations required.
