HC Deb 29 March 1956 vol 550 cc229-30W
51. Dr. Bennett

asked the Minister of Education if he will now release the land at Brook Lane, Sarisbury, previously required for educational purposes, which belongs to Mr. G. H. R. Cook, in view of the fact that the number of children in the area will not justify the erection of a school on this land within Mr. Cook's lifetime, and in order to remedy the injustice being suffered by Mr. Cook.

Sir D. Eccles

Mr. Cook knew when he bought the land that the Hampshire County Council might wish to acquire it for educational purposes. I understand the county council is likely to put to me quite soon a proposal for its acquisition, which I shall consider carefully.
