HC Deb 30 January 1969 vol 776 c1509
23. Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science when he will give approval for the work shops, music room and additional class rooms at Deansfield High School, Wolverhampton, to be completed.

Mr. Edward Short

I am awaiting a reply from the authority to my letter about its reorganisation scheme before considering this building project further.

Mrs. Short

Does my right hon. Friend recall that he opened this school in my constituency very recently and that the completion of the school should not be held back because of the plan which the local authority has sent in? Is he aware that we are anxious to get this work done and will he reconsider the mailer?

Mr. Short

I recall opening the school, which is a splendid one for which I congratulate the local authority. I want to see how the completed project will fit into the long-term reorganisation scheme, and that is what I am waiting for now. The local authority received my letter—I understand that it did not receive the first copy and that a copy of the original was sent—and I am awaiting its reply.
