asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science, further to the reply of the hon. Member for Liverpool, Scotland Exchange on 20 April, whether his Department received a petition from the action committee objecting to the proposed closure of the Bishop Goss Roman Catholic primary school, Liverpool; and if he will make a statement.

I have now received this petition. If the Liverpool education authority intends to close any county or voluntary school, it must publish proposals to this effect in accordance with the Eduction Act 1980. Should the authority publish proposals in respect of Bishop Goss Roman Catholic primary school, these would require my right hon. Friend's approval; he would decide them in the light of all relevant factors, including any statutory objections which might be made.
