asked the Minister of Education what action he has taken or is taking to assist the local authorities concerned to expedite the opening of the youth centre at the Gate House in Chiswick House grounds, in view of the urgent need for facilities for young people in the borough of Brentford and Chiswick.

I have already given approval in principle to the proposal of the Middlesex Local Education Authority to spend £2,400 on adapting Gate House for use as a youth centre and have authorised the allocation of steel for fencing standards. I am now awaiting the Authority's reply to the letter of 22nd January from my Department asking for plans and priced specifications of the building work to be carried out. Until these have been received and considered I cannot give final approval to the proposal.
