HC Deb 25 July 1968 vol 769 c164W
Mr. Dance

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will take steps to ensure that overspill population accommodated in development on the periphery of Birmingham will be adequately served by schools and other educational facilities within the city of Birmingham.

Miss Bacon

The provision of school places for the children who move out of Birmingham is the statutory responsibility of the local education authorities for the areas into which they move. I understand that the Birmingham Authority are proposing to co-operate so far as practicable by continuing to provide places in Birmingham schools for children moving into the outer areas for whom places are not yet available in those areas.
