HC Deb 21 June 1973 vol 858 cc202-3W
Mr. Stallard

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science (1) when she expects to be able to announce the form of technical inquiry which she intends to hold into the recent disaster at Camden School for Girls;

(2) what steps she intends to take to co-ordinate the various technical reports now being prepared, following the recent disaster at Camden School for Girls; and whether she will publish the findings.

Mrs. Thatcher

With the agreement of the parties concerned I am asking the Building Research Establishment, as a matter of urgency, to undertake an investigation into the technical reasons for the collapse of the roof of part of Camden Girls School. I understand that the investigation may take two months. I shall arrange for the publication of the results. The investigation will take account of other inquiries that have been made. I shall decide whether further action is required by me when the technical facts are known.
