§ Mr. Barry Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Wales when he proposes to give final approval to the proposed new Roman Catholic primary school for Buckley; what is the proposed size; what is the estimated cost; what is the proposed opening date; if there will be nursery places; how many places for the building of the school are envisaged; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Michael Roberts
Approval has been given. The school building will occupy a site of approximately 0.13 hectares and will provide 185 places, of which 10 will be nursery places. The cost is estimated to be of the order of £350,000 and the building is expected to be completed by the autumn of 1984. The opening date is a matter for the local education authority and the Church authorities.
