§ Mr. MORGAN JONES
asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is aware that two of the non-provided elementary schools in Ramsgate, namely, Christ Church and St. Augustine's, were condemned about a year ago; that the managers were given two years to reconstruct the buildings or provide alternative accommodation, and that up to the present nothing has been done; and what action the Board intend to take on this matter?671W
§ Lord E. PERCY
I am aware of the position as stated in the first two parts of the question. As regards the rest of the question, I have received proposals from the managers of both schools for dealing with the matter, and I have asked for further particulars, including plans, with regard to these proposals. On the receipt of these particulars, the matter will receive the immediate consideration of my Department, and I can assure the hon. Member that a decision will be taken at the earliest possible moment.
