HC Deb 29 July 1960 vol 627 cc221-2W
Mr. Wainwright

asked the Minister of Education if he has considered making an additional financial grant to the West Riding County Council, so that accommodation can be provided for 500 pupils in the Swinton and Mexborough area, as a replacement for the Swinton Modern School, which his Department has now agreed shall be converted to a non-residential teachers' training college.

Sir D. Eccles

I understand that the West Riding Local Education Authority will shortly be making proposals for the organisation of secondary schools in the Swinton and Mexborough areas as a result of my approval of the scheme to open a day training college there. I shall consider them on their merits.
