§ Mr. Evennett
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will pay an official visit to St. Fidelis school in Erith to discuss the capital funding of the school and its proposed expansion.
§ Mr. Fallon
The capital funding of the proposed expansion project at St. Fidelis school will be one of the factors considered by my right hon. and learned Friend in his decision on proposals published by the governors, under section 13 of the 1980 Education Act, to enlarge the school significantly. It is not our practice to visit schools which are the subject of statutory proposals; but if we did, it would not be possible to discuss any of the issues involved, as this could be held to have pre-judged our eventual decision on the proposals.
