§ Mr. Alton
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science (1) if he will now visit the schools in Liverpool he proposes to close;
(2) to where children at the following Liverpool schools will be transferred on implementation of the secondary reorganisation plan and to what use the existing buildings will be put: (a) Aigburgh vale girls school, (b) Childwall valley girls school, (c) The Collegiate, (d) the institutes and (e) Hillfoot Hey boys school;
(3) if he will list the new secondary schools proposed for Liverpool; and how many children he expects to attend each.
§ Mr. Dunn
My right hon. Friend has made no proposals to close schools in Liverpool. The proposals before him for the reorganisation of county secondary schools are those of the Liverpool education authority, which he is now consulting about certain modifications in accordance with the provisions of the Education Act 1980. If, in the light of that consultation, Liverpool's proposals are approved, their implementation will also fall to the local education authority.
