§ 33. Captain FULLER
(for Sir JOHN HASLAM) asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education if his Department are prepared to make a monetary grant to religious denominations who, on their part, are prepared to build and equip non-provided schools in the newly populated areas on the outskirts of our towns caused by re-housing and abolition of slum areas?
§ Mr. RAMSBOTHAM
Under existing enactments the Board of Education have no power to make any such grants as my hon. Friend suggests.
§ Captain FULLER
Will the hon. Gentleman consider the desirability of taking some power, in view of the heavy losses which will devolve on religious demominations because of the housing schemes, and especially having regard to the new houses which will be required in the new housing areas?
