§ 10. Mr. H. Hynd
asked the Minister of Education how many new schools it is estimated will be built in Accrington in the current financial year.
§ Mr. Hynd
Is not that answer very unsatisfactory in view of the fact that many children in Accrington have to travel considerable distances because there is no room in the schools in the neighbourhood, and that some of the schools are in a deplorable condition, particularly one about which I have been 428 in correspondence with the right hon. Lady's Department?
§ Miss Horsbrugh
The local education authority have not asked for a new school to be included in their current building programme or in previous ones, but I am considering the authority's proposal to include a new secondary school in the reserve list for 1954–55.
