§ 4. Mr. David Atkinson
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many proposed closures of secondary schools he has declined to approve since 1982.
§ Mr. Atkinson
Is my hon. Friend aware of the great disappointment caused by his decision to support the closure of Beaufort school, which is one of the most popular and over-subscribed schools in my constituency? How does he reconcile that decision with the Secretary of State's often repeated and justified support for the principle of parental choice?
