HC Deb 09 June 1989 vol 154 cc238-9W
Mr. Ken Hargreaves

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he has completed his consideration of the registration and approval of Castle Hill school, Shropshire.

Mrs. Rumbold

Nearly all its pupils are being withdrawn from the school. My right hon. Friend is accordingly seeking confirmation from the proprietor that he is taking steps to close it.

I am placing in the Library copies of the letters to the school and to local education authorities informing them of this action.
