HC Deb 10 June 1971 vol 818 cc352-3W
Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science why she has advised local education authorities to withdraw all their mentally disturbed children from the Corsbie Hall School in Fife; and whether she intends such withdrawals to be permanent, or until such time as the school is brought up to minimum requirements as to premises and staff.

Mrs. Thatcher

I reached this conclusion after considering a report by inspectors of the Scottish Education Department. If the situation at the school changes I should naturally be prepared to reconsider the matter.
