HC Deb 05 June 1947 vol 438 cc29-30W
25. Mrs. Middleton

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why the Castle Street school, Plymouth, has not yet been derequisitioned; and whether he is aware that adequate arrangements for the accommodation of those children remaining at school until 15 years of age are much impeded by withholding from the local education authority the use of this building.

Mr. Ede

The release of this school has been held up owing to the difficulty of obtaining alternative accommodation for the firemen who are stationed there. The alternative premises have now been secured, the necessary adaptations have been started, and it is hoped that they will be completed in about two months' time, when the school will be vacated.
