Primary Education: St Albans

Volume 492: debated on Wednesday 20 May 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what recent assessment his Department has made of the potential to increase the number of primary school places in central St Albans; and if he will make a statement. (276363)

The Department has not made any assessment of the potential to increase the number of primary school places in central St. Albans. That is the local authority’s role. Hertfordshire local authority is responsible for planning school places in St. Albans. It is under a duty to ensure sufficient school places are available to meet local needs.
