§ Mr. AUGUSTINE ROCHE
asked the number of schools in Circuit 9, Section C, where it is necessary to teach the children outside during the winter months, and for how many of these have applications for structural improvements been made by the managers; and what reasons are assigned for the delay in making grants in these necessitous cases?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The Commissioners of National Education have no evidence to show that there are any number of national
schools where it is necessary to teach the children outside in the open air during winter, and they would not approve of such a proceeding. If the name and the particulars of any case of the kind are given to them it will be inquired into.
