§ Dr. Wyndham Davies
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science why he has not yet answered the letter of the hon. Member for Birmingham, Perry Barr on the mismanagement of the affairs of the Birmingham School of Architecture by Birmingham City Council over a period of nearly four months.
§ Mr. Crosland
The hon. Member will have received a letter dated 30th July from my noble Friend the Minister of State explaining that discussions about the future of the Birmingham School of Architecture are in progress. Meanwhile, the local education authority is discharging its responsibility towards the school as a department of the College of Art with its customary efficiency.
