103. Mr. I. 0. Thomas
asked the Minister of Education if she is aware that Salop County Council has now considered and adopted a recommendation of their education committee that three of their six nursery schools, namely, those at Hodnet, Donnington, and Harlescott, Shrewsbury, be closed as from the end of the summer term 1952; that there is strong local opposition to this decision; and if she will refuse to sanction it.
§ Miss Horsbrugh
I have only today received official intimation from the authority of their proposals, and of their reasons for making them. I am aware of the representations which have been made against these proposals, and shall take them into account in coming to a decision.
