§ Mr. Deakins
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if the London Borough of Waltham Forest ranks as an educational priority area.
§ Mr. van Straubenzee
No educational priority areas have been designated as such. But parts of Waltham Forest have benefited from special building allocations for socially deprived areas, from the urban programme and from the payment of special allowances to teachers in schools of exceptional difficulty.
