§ Mr. Newens
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what was the total expenditure involved in renovating the East Anglian School for the Deaf at Gorleston, Norfolk, in recent years; and how many children from Essex attend the school.
§ Mr. Crosland
The East Anglian School at Gorleston has sections both for deaf and partially sighted children. Part of the cost of its reconstruction was in respect of accommodation in common use by both sections and figures apportioning the cost are not available. The total cost was £183,000. 21 deaf children from the administrative County of Essex attend the school.
