HC Deb 19 January 1981 vol 997 c71W
Mr. Beith

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what representations he has received against the closure of Shilbottle Church of England aided first school; whether these include representations from the school managers; and when he expects to announce his decision.

Dr. Boyson

My right hon. and learned Friend has received 12 letters objecting to Northumberland education authority's proposal to cease to maintain Shilbottle Church of England aided first school, including one from the governors of the school. He expects to reach a decision on the proposal shortly.
