HC Deb 30 November 1972 vol 847 cc240-1W
Mr. Joel Barnett

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will give urgent consideration to approving the building of two temporary classrooms at the Dearnley Primary School in Littleborough, pending the starting and completion of a more permanent extension to the school; and if she will make a statement.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

This is a matter for the Lancashire education authority to determine in relation to other demands on its minor works allocations. My right hon. Friend understands that rather than erect temporary classrooms it is transporting children temporarily to nearby schools which have more room, pending the completion of new building work which should double the number of places at the Dearnley School.
