HC Deb 03 December 1953 vol 521 cc166-7W
98. Mr. Proctor

asked the Minister of Education if, in view of the hardships to the children and parents concerned, she will reconsider her decision not to allow the Lancashire County Council to proceed with its scheme for the immediate provision of facilities for the education of educationally sub-normal children in the Eccles and Swinton area.

Miss Horsbrugh

No, but I have told the local education authority that I am prepared to consider sympathetically a proposal to build a new day special school in this area for educationally sub-normal pupils.
