Church Schools Crisis. ALLEGED MISREPRESENTATION Strong Reply to Whitehall. The Swansea Education Committee on Mon- day afternoon reassembled after tbe holidays, unci#-r- the chairmanship of Alderman Martin, when. the members were confronted with voluminous correspondence with respect to the local non-provided schools. This corres- pondence was divided into two sections^-one relating to the plan of the National Schools in Oxford-street, and the other to the question of the salaries of the teachers in the non-pro- vided. schools. It was decided to-first take the correspond- ence rela-ting to the Oxford-street Schools. This correspondence dated from April 10th last and covered a-period up till August. The Chair- man first drew attention to the resolution adopted by the Corporation that notice bo giveit to the managers of the Oxford-street (Church-of-England) School that if they do not on or before the 31st J uly give a satisfac- tory undertaking that the altera- tions and improvements in the school buildings "lwJl be proceeded with the Council would cease to maintain the school. On .y-ttgust 12th tÜe manager IJromi8d to sub- mit plans for the provision of not less than 20 square feet of playground space per child in average attendance on the level and on the roof. The Chairman explained tha t this letter did not contain the undertaking demanded. The managers, not having given a satisfactory undertaking, aoll not. having since tendered one. the resolution of the authority stood. Mr Cadwaladwr said a letter of the 24th May de- clared the Board of Bducation were prepared to consider the proposal to provide a roof play- ground subject to the limitation of 20 feet of playground-space. The managers accordingly drew fresh plans, and that phase ought to havp been considered very carefuily before the resolution was come to cutting off support to theschool. The Chairman though the committee should approve-of the decision of the Special Com- mittee, which laid it down that the undcrtak- ing submitted was not a satisfactory under- taking. lie moved a resolution to that effect, and it was .carried. with one dissentient. Alderman Tutton asked if any fresh plan had been sent in, and Mr Cadwalladwr aid he understood so. Mr Moy Evans drew attention to a telegram sent to the managers by Mr A. T. Davies. of the Welsh department ot the Board :—" Your letter of August 21st discloses serious mis- understanding on your part of President's decision on July 16th. ilis wiUinJCmes3 to al10w as little as 20 feet for playground was limited to existing site, and if more land was obtain- able, which WiJ.5 no disclosed to him, he would not have felt justiiied in allowing so little as 20 feet for playground. The Hoard's.suggest ion of what undertaking you might offer to local authority was limited to existing site. Are you prepared to give that undertaking thus limited?' If, said Mr Evans., the present proposal of the managers was proceeded with it would be a new school on a new site, and the Board re- quired that all new schools should have play- ground space of 30 feet and not 20 feet. Alderman Tutton said the authority had already ceased to maintain the schools, and therefore it'should not give any reason in the motion for adhering to its former decision. The motion confirming the committee's decision was carried by 11 to two.
