HC Deb 29 November 1989 vol 162 c259W
Mr. Bowis

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will make a statement on the safety of school buildings in London, following the death of Richard Cooney at Sir James Barrie primary school, Battersea, on 23 November.

Mr. Alan Howarth

I was greatly saddened to hear of this tragic accident. I understand that the Inner London education authority, which is responsible for the safety of school premises in inner London, is preparing a report on the incident. I am asking the Inner London education authority to make a copy of its report available to my hon. Friend.
