§ Mr. Ernie Ross
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has yet received proposals from Tayside region on its plans for the future of primary schooling in the west end of Dundee; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Alexander Fletcher
Tayside regional council applied to the Secretary of State for approval to close Hawkhill primary school, Dundee, with effect from August 1980, and to change the site of Blackness primary school, Dundee, from its present premises to the Hawkhill building, with effect from August 1981.
