asked the Minister of Education on what date, after 25th March, 1954, she notified the Cheshire County Council Education Committee that the Alsager Urban District Council could use the Excalibur Camp School to relieve the overcrowding at the Church of England Primary School; on what date the Cheshire County Council notified the Alsager Urban District Council of the fact; and when the school will commence to be used.

The Alsager Urban District Council as such has no responsibility for the provision of schools. On 5th March last the Cheshire Local Education Authority informed me that they had accepted the view that I put to them last summer that the accommodation in the Excalibur Camp should be used, and I am now waiting to hear whether they propose to use it as an annex to the existing school, as I think preferable, or as premises for a new school, for the establishment of which public notice must be given.
