HC Deb 29 February 1972 vol 832 c99W
Mr. Greville Janner

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science (1) if she will seek reports from heads of schools in the City of Leicester on road safety hazards and accident dangers to their pupils at the entrances to their schools;

(2) whether she will seek a report from the headmaster of the Beaumont Leys School in north-west Leicester concerning the dangers to his pupils caused by the absence of adequate pavements or kerbing or drainage or of any speed restriction and by the presence of bus stops at or by the entrance to his school;

(3) if she will seek reports from heads of schools on accidents sustained by their pupils at or near the entrances to their schools.

Mrs. Thatcher

No. These matters are the concern of the local education and highway authorities and the police. I do not think any useful purpose would be served by my asking for this information.
