HC Deb 16 November 1972 vol 846 c189W
18. Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether she is aware that, notwithstanding the Government's appeal to the Ugandan Asians not to enter the red areas, including the London Borough of Newham, since July, 1972, 366 immigrant children, of whom 118 were Ugandan Asians, have entered the borough; and, in view of the effect on the education services, what action she proposes to take to deal with this situation.

Mrs. Thatcher

I will consider sympathetically any application by the local education authority for an extra minor works allocation for 1972–73 to provide any necessary additional accommodation.
