HC Deb 06 December 1972 vol 847 c466W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science why she has put a two-year delay on a replacement school for the Elmhurst Primary School, Forest Gate, London, E.7, because of her failure to expedite the hearing of appeals against compulsory purchase orders; and whether she will expedite these.

Mr. St John-Stevas

A public inquiry into the compulsory purchase order made on 3rd November 1971 for a replacement site for Elmhurst School is to be held on 25th January 1973 jointly with an inquiry by the Department of the Environment into planning permission Every effort will then be made to come to an early decision.
