asked the Minister of Education how many Warwickshire epileptic children were placed in special schools or homes during 1953; the waiting list still remaining at the latest convenient date: and the building programme in 1953–54 for the accommodation of such children.

The latest return from the Warwickshire local education authority shows that during 1953 three epileptic children were placed in special schools or boarding homes. In December last, three children were awaiting such places. Extensions to the Lingfield Epileptic School, Surrey, which were begun in 1952, and of which further instalments have been included in the building programmes for each subsequent year, will provide about 150 extra places, of which 78 will come into use next term.
