Wandsworth Boys School
§ Miss Hoey
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what direction he proposes to give the London residuary body as to release of the site of the former Wandsworth boys' school in Sutherland grove, Wandsworth; and what provision will be made to compensate inner London boroughs for the loss of their proportion of the capital value of the site.
§ Mr. Eggar
My right hon. and learned Friend has directed the LRB to hold Sutherland grove pending proposals to establish a new Church of England school under section 13 of the Education Act 1980. These proposals would require the approval of my right hon. and learned Friend. If the proposals were approved the site would be sold at educational value by the LRB to the governors of the school. If the proposals were not approved, or if proposals were not brought forward, the site would be sold by the LRB at full commercial value. In either case, the receipts would be used to benefit all the inner London councils.
