§ Mr. Nicholas Winterton
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will meet the chief education officer of Cheshire county council to discuss the financial implications of the decision to close the Kettleshume Church of England primary school.
§ Mr. Atkins
Cheshire county council has not yet published section 12 proposals to close Kettleshume primary school. When proposals are published, the authority will be required to provide information about financial implications of closing the school. I would therefore not expect a meeting with the chief education officer to be necessary.
