HC Deb 27 January 1986 vol 90 cc361-2W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will make a statement on the future of Burton Manor college, Merseyside.

Mr. Walden

I understand that a resolution of the college governors, providing for the termination of the present agreement for the government and maintenance of the college, will shortly be submitted by the Liverpool local education authority to my right hon. Friend, whose confirmation of the resolution and approval to the sale of the premises is required under the terms of the agreement. In reaching his decision my right hon. Friend will take account of the representations which he has already received about it from various quarters, including hon. Members.
