HC Deb 18 December 1952 vol 509 c240W
88. Mrs. Castle

asked the Minister of Education whether she is aware that housing estates are now being built in Blackburn for families for whom no proper school provision is being made; and whether she will reconsider her refusal to allow the necessary schools to be built.

Miss Horsbrugh

One school on the largest estate has been included in the local education authority's building programme for next year, and another in the Reserve List. If the best use is made of the schools available, it should be possible to find places in school for all children of school age on the estates.
