HC Deb 23 July 1970 vol 804 c740
32. Mr. Edwin Wainwright

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science is she will include in the 1971–72 building programme the project for the rebuilding of the Conisbrough Northcliffe Secondary School.

Mr. van Straubenzee

My right hon. Friend is considering a proposal by the West Riding Authority for the improvement and extension of this school for inclusion in the preliminary list of projects which may be expected to start in 1972–73.

Mr. Wainwright

Will the hon. Gentleman take into account that this school has suffered subsidence and there are 14 temporary classrooms placed hotch-potch around the area, and will he, therefore, consider bringing the project forward a year earlier to ensure that proper accommodation can be found for the children there?

Mr van Straubenzee

I could not under take to do that. The school building starts which we inherited for 1971–72 are already fully committed.
