HC Deb 17 December 1985 vol 89 c149
9. Mr. Evennett

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he has received any representations about the proposed closure of Crayford school.

The Minister of State, Department of Education and Science (Mr. Chris Patten)

No, Sir.

Mr. Evennett

Will my hon Friend consider the proposal to close Crayford school carefully when it arrives on his desk for a decision, and take account of the wishes of parents and the local community? Will he also consider the problems that children will face if they have to travel a long way to another school?

Mr. Patten

I know what an informed interest in due course my hon. Friend has shown in this issue. I assure him that my right hon. Friend will want to take appropriate account of all representations from his constituents.
