HC Deb 22 November 1973 vol 864 cc512-3W
Mr. Merlyn Rees

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what was the original date of her approval of the rebuilding of St. Luke's Church of England School, Holbeck, South Leeds; and why she has asked for a delay in commencement of the work.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

Agreement was given on 20th August 1971 for preparations to be made on the basis of work starting in 1973–74. Sketch plans were cleared by the Department on 12th June 1973. I understand that the authority is not yet ready to apply for final approval.
