HC Deb 06 March 1968 vol 760 c86W
73. Sir M. Galpern

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware of Glasgow Corporation's decision to close Lawmuir Agricultural School after 26 years of successful operation; and if he will take steps to have the decision reviewed.

Mr. Ross

I have only very recently received proposals from Glasgow Education Authority which involve discontinuing further education and secondary education at Lawmuir. This proposal is consistent with the recommendations of the Scottish Technical Education Consultative Council, but I shall, of course, examine it carefully before reaching any decision.
