HC Deb 03 May 1956 vol 552 c571
11. Captain Pilkington

asked the Minister of Education, in view of the representations which he has made to him, what reply he has made regarding the present accommodation in Broad-stone Primary School.

Sir D. Eccles

I received representations from a number of local residents a week ago, and am considering what reply should be sent.

Captain Pilkington

Is my right hon. Friend aware that the need at this school is very great indeed, and that here is another opportunity for economy which the Minister can secure by doing what is necessary in one undertaking instead of taking two bites at it?

Sir D. Eccles

I noticed that, but I am not at all sure that we could not in some other way do what is required.

Mr. M. Stewart

Will the right hon. Gentleman remember that, in any help he may be able to give to this school, he will profit from the useful economies made in reducing the cost of school places as a result of his Department's work under the administration of the late George Tomlinson?

Sir D. Eccles

I am grateful for anybody who has had any connection with the Architects and Buildings Branch of my Ministry, which has done very good work.
