asked the Minister of Education if he has any further statement to make in connection with the erection of school buildings by the East Ham Borough Council, on Wanstead Flats, which is part of Epping Forest.

Yes. I understand that the East Ham local education authority are considering what steps to take with a view to acquiring a site of 18.9 acres forming part of Wanstead Flats. They have recently asked me to approve this site in principle as suitable for the educational purposes proposed, and I am considering this application along with various protests that have reached me.
