HC Deb 12 December 1978 vol 960 cc107-8W
22. Mr. Madel

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science why she approved Bedfordshire county council's decision to close Eggington School.

Miss Margaret Jackson:

Bedfordshire county council's proposal to cease to maintain Eggington infant school and to transfer the pupils to Standbridge first school was approved because in the Secretary of State's view this would be in the best educational interests of all the children in the area.
