HC Deb 13 November 1969 vol 791 c125W
35. Mr. Turton

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what representations he has received against the closure of Wath Primary School; and what opportunities he is affording the parents and teachers at this school to make representations on the proposal to transfer the children to a new primary school at Burneston, more than eight miles away.

Mr. Edward Short

Local people, including the managers of the Wath School and a number of local government electors, have exercised their statutory right of objection to the proposal to establish a new school at Burneston in substitution for the existing Wath, Kirklington and Burneston schools. I shall consider all the objections most carefully before reaching a decision.
