asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education whether, in view of the necessity of the development or reorganisation of many schools on account of the paramount importance of the welfare of school children to which the Board called attention in Circular No. 1444, a general survey has now been made of all school premises, especially in country areas?

:The schemes of reorganisation upon which local education authorities, including those for country areas, are actively engaged involve a survey of all school premises. Only in this way can the authorities determine what part each school shall take in the schemes of reorganisation.

May we be informed how many schools are without water for drinking and other purposes?
