HC Deb 11 March 1975 vol 888 cc106-7W
Mr. Albert Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science in view of the increasing school population of Crofton, in the metropolitan area of Wakefield, if he will give immediate consent for the provision of school places to avoid overcrowding.

Mr. Prentice:

Lump sum authorisations for school building in 1975–76 have been announced to local education authorities, and it will be for the Wakefield authority to decide if it wishes to make provision at Crofton within the total available to it.
