Schools: Lancashire

Volume 503: debated on Wednesday 6 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families if he will make an assessment of the likely effects on other schools and colleges in east Lancashire of the proposed establishment of the Mohiuddin International Girls’ College; and if he will make a statement. (306337)

This is not an issue on which the Secretary of State can make an assessment. Local authorities are responsible for planning maintained school place provision in their area and the Learning and Skills Council is responsible for planning further education provision. It is, therefore, for them to consider what, if any, effect the proposed college might have.
