HC Deb 13 March 1973 vol 852 cc309-10W
32. Mr. J. H. Osborn

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what projects she is considering for inclusion in the next special schools building programme, for the Sheffield local education authority area, for the educationally subnormal, for the blind, and those who are educationally backward.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

Three projects in Sheffield are being considered for inclusion in the Special Schools Design List for 1973–74: the replacement of Kirkhill School, which is mainly for children who are severely educationally subnormal, the replacement of Springvale House for the less severely ESN and the remodelling of Tapton Mount School for the blind. The local education authority was informed on 16th January that these projects had been included in the preliminary list for 1972–73.
