Thornsett school is a splendid small primary school in my constituency. We have recently managed to get Derbyshire county council to place it on the list of schools that are due for replacement, but it was quite a job to get it on the list, because although it has inadequate staff facilities, very poor access up steep steps on to the road, and half the playground taken up by a temporary classroom, we are advised that it does not meet other criteria on the Department's list. Will my hon. Friend look sympathetically at the Derbyshire list, particularly as regards Thornsett school, whose Victorian buildings need replacing?
