HC Deb 19 January 1967 vol 739 c624
9. Mr. Robert Cooke

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he will include St. John's Church of England Voluntary Controlled Junior, Mixed and Infant's School in the next educational building programme for Bristol.

Mr. Denis Howell

No, Sir.

Mr. Cooke

Will the hon. Gentleman look at this matter again, because the school is on an island site surrounded by hurtling traffic and road proposals now being considered may well make life impossible for it in future.

Mr. Howell

I will look at that again, although I am told that the road improvements should improve safety because pedestrian subways are being provided. However, the school has not appeared yet in any of the lists of local authority schools for replacement, and certainly the local authority does not regard it as in the most urgent three or four of its projects.
