HC Deb 08 May 1972 vol 836 c285W
Mr. David Stoddart

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science why she refused to receive a deputation from Swindon Education Committee to discuss the problem of Clifton Primary School; and whether she will reconsider the decision.

Mr. van Straubenzee:

The Clifton primary schools, though in the area of the Swindon excepted district, are maintained by the Wiltshire Local Education Authority. My right hon. Friend suggested therefore that the matter should first be discussed with the Wiltshire authority.
