§ 4. Mr. Harold Davies
asked the Minister of Education if agreement has now been reached about the future use of Horton Lodge, Rudyard, Leek, as a special school for delicate children.
§ Mr. Tomlinson
In the absence of agreement between the parties concerned, a statutory local inquiry has been held.
2055 I have accepted the recommendation of the report of the inquiry and have approved the proposal of the Stoke-on-Trent local education authority in preference to that of the county authority.
§ Mr. Davies
Does this mean that the inquiry that my right hon. Friend set up has come to the conclusion that the needs of the City of Stoke-on-Trent are greater than those of the county in this matter?
