HC Deb 24 May 1968 vol 765 cc143-4W
Mr. Hobden

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science (1) how many children of the age of five years and over have been refused admittance to Moulsecombe School, Brighton, to date; and how many have been refused entrance for the new term commencing September, 1968;

(2) when demountable classrooms for additional pupils will be erected at Moulsecombe School, Brighton.

Miss Alice Bacon

I am informed that 26 children who had just reached the age of 5 could not be admitted to the School at the beginning of the summer term and were offered places at other schools within statutory walking distance of their homes. The Brighton Authority do not expect any children of compulsory school age to be refused admission next term.

The Authority plan to bring two demountable classrooms into use at the School next term.
