§ Mr. David Marshall
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he proposes to approve the proposal to close Newlands primary school, Springfield Road, Glasgow; and on what date it is proposed that it will close.
§ Mr. Alexander Fletcher
My right hon. Friend has not yet completed his consideration of Strathclyde regional council's proposal to close Newlands primary school, Glasgow, with effect from 26 June 1981. In accordance with his normal practice in cases of this kind, my right hon. Friend will write to the hon. Member to ascertain his views on the authority's proposal before he comes to his decision.
