HC Deb 12 July 1973 vol 859 cc417-8W
Mr. George Cunningham

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science when last a Department of Education inspector examined the accommodation and teaching facilities at Islington borough's Gisburne reception centre at Watford.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

This is not an establishment to which Her Majesty's inspector has right of entry; but education is provided there by a local education authority and Her Majesty's inspector visited it by invitation on 28th September 1970 along with representatives of the then Children's Department of the Home Office, whose responsibility in the matter now rests with the Department of Health and Social Security.
