§ 17. Mr. Shersby
To ask the Secretary of State for Education what progress he has made in considering the difficulties faced by parents in Uxbridge and Hillingdon in sending their children to Vyners school Ickenham as a result of the upgrading of the A40 to motorway standard; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Robin Squire
I understand that Vyners school is heavily over-subscribed and would like to expand. It is for the school to make a case for capital funds to provide additional school places within the next capital bidding round.
From April I expect the Funding Agency for Schools will have responsibilities over the supply of school places in Hillingdon. I shall shortly be writing to my hon. Friend about the implications.
