asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is aware that, prior to the War, the Board of Education threatened the governors of the Roan School, Greenwich, with loss of grant if better and more suitable premises were not built; and will he state why, although in 1918 a site was obtained, the rebuilding of the school was forbidden, seeing that the school is now overcrowded and that the stone-floored washing lavatory is now used for classes and meals?

Prior to the War, the Board urged the removal of the school, but they did not threaten loss of grant. No proposals have been received for the erection of buildings on the site purchased in 1921. I understand that the room referred to is no longer used as a class room, and that it is not unfit for temporary use as an overflow dining room.

Will no objection be taken to their proceeding with this new building if they desire to go forward on the land they have acquired?
