HC Deb 27 July 1983 vol 46 c462W
Mr. Loyden

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will make a statement on the future of Croxteth comprehensive school in Liverpool.

Mr. Dunn

In accordance with its own proposals which were approved by my right hon. Friend, Liverpool education authority ceased to maintain Croxteth comprehensive school with effect from the end of the 1982–83 school year. I understand that Liverpool city council, as part of its plans for the reorganisation of its county secondary schools, intends to publish proposals to re-establish a county school in the premises of the former comprehensive. If it does so, my right hon. Friend would consider those proposals on their merits.
