HC Deb 06 March 1947 vol 434 c109W
Lieut. - Colonel Bromley - Davenport

asked the Minister of Education whether he is aware of the lack of secondary educational facilities for children of the 11-plus age at Bollington, near Macclesfield; and whether he anticipates that it will be possible to make arrangements in the near future to improve these facilities.

Mr. Tomlinson

I am aware of the position and I understand that the local education authority intend to meet the need by building a new school. Certain interim proposals which had been put forward by the authority for the use of accommodation in Poynton were not considered satisfactory by my Department. Arrangements are being made for officers of the Department to discuss the position with the authority's representatives.
