HC Deb 15 May 1947 vol 437 c1687
20. Sir Waldron Smithers

asked the Minister of Education why no reply has been received by the hon. Member for Orpington to a letter addressed to his Department, dated 13th January, 1947, about buildings in Jail Lane, Cudham.

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Education (Mr. Hardman)

My right hon. Friend has now written to the hon. Member and explained the position regarding the buildings at Cudham.

Sir W. Smithers

Is the hon. Gentleman aware that a just decision as early as possible will be of great importance to the local residents?

Mr. Hardman

The matter is being taken up urgently, and the necessary site is being investigated at the present time.

Sir W. Smithers

It has been going on since January.
