HC Deb 13 April 1972 vol 834 cc209-10W
Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether, in view of the fact that she considers Corsbie Hall School, Fife, unsuitable for the placement of handicapped pupils, she will now advise the local education authorities in England who still have pupils there to withdraw them.

Mrs. Thatcher

All the English local education authorities which sent children to this school have accepted the advice I have already given to withdraw them, except one. Further visits by H.M. Inspectorate of Schools in Scotland have recently been made to the school. My right hon. Friend is now urgently con- sidering the question of final registration of this school and I will consider what further action is necessary immediately he has reached his decision.
