HC Deb 19 May 1873 vol 216 cc99-100

asked the Secretary to the Local Government Board, Whether there is any foundation for the report that the Governing Body of Shrewsbury School have come to or contemplate coming to a determination to remove the School Building from its present site to a situation more than a mile outside the town; and, if so, whether before taking any further steps in the matter they will receive either a deputation or memorial from the inhabitants of the borough on the subject?


in reply, said, it was true that the Governing Body of Shrewsbury School had determined to remove the school from its present site, and to remove it to a site within three miles of the centre of the town, as they were empowered to do under the Public Schools Act. They had now three different sites under consideration, but had not yet come to any decision with respect to them. In conclusion, he might say that any memorial or deputation upon the subject from the inhabitants would receive attention.
