§ Mr. Harry Howarth
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what proposals have been submitted to him for the building of a new primary school at Earls Barton, Northamptonshire; when these proposals will be approved; and what action is being taken in the meantime subject to his approval to improve the present facilities.
§ Miss Bacon
The authority has proposed a new junior school for inclusion in the 1971–72 building programme, to be followed by the remodelling of the present junior department to accommodate infants and the demolition of the existing infants' department. I hope shortly to authorise the authority to make a start on this project next year by building a first instalment comprising a hall, three classrooms and perhaps some additional accommodation.
