HC Deb 04 December 1989 vol 163 c15W
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.
