HC Deb 01 April 1971 vol 814 c424W
Mrs. Lena Jeger

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether she is aware of the old and inadequate buildings in which the staff of St. George the Martyr School, Holborn, work; and when is it intended that the construction of a new school will begin.

Mr. van Straubenzee

Yes. I understand that the London Diocesan Board of Education will be meeting shortly to consider the manager's proposal to rebuild the school on a new site in Millman Street without grant from the Department. This proposal is acceptable to the Inner London Education Authority, and my right hon. Friend will consider it sympathetically when it is put formally to her. If she approves the proposal, work will be able to start as soon as the managers are ready.
