§ 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.
