Mr. Ted Fletcher
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science when she proposes to inform the Darlington Borough Council of her decision regarding the replacement of St. Augustine's Primary School, which is over 100 years old; and whether she will expedite her decision in view of the desirability of building a new school rather than having to make do with temporary accommodation following the construction of the inner ring road.
§ Mr. St. John-Stevas
The timing of future announcements about school building programmes will depend on the outcome of the consideration now being given to their rephasing following the Prime Minister's announcement on 8th October which gave rise to the Department's Circular 12/73. A further circular will be issued as soon as possible.
