HC Deb 02 May 1950 vol 474 c1563
32. Mr. Hubbard

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware that, while there is a school in the new housing area in Sinclairtown, many very young children have to travel a considerable distance, crossing busy main roads, to Dysart schools; and if he proposes taking steps to extend Sinclairtown school to remedy this matter.

Miss Herbison

I am aware that some 50 Sinclairtown children have to attend Dysart school, less than a mile away, owing to accommodation at Sinclairtown school being inadequate. Fife education authority intend ultimately to extend Sinclairtown school, but consider that more pressing needs in other parts of their area must first be met.
