§ Mr. Speller
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is the present and the forecast figure for pupils at the primary schools in Barnstaple Roundswell, Barnstaple Whiddon Valley and Barnstaple Landkey; and what additional funding he will provide for new schools in this area.
§ Mr. Alan Howarth
According to Devon local education authority, the figures are as follows:
1989 1993 Barnstaple, Roundswell 371 501 Barnstaple, Whiddon Valley 887 1,140 Barnstaple, Landkey 205 218
No proposals for new schools are currently before my right hon. Friend for decision. Priority is given in the distribution of annual capital guidelines for new school places needed as a result of population growth.
