Oral Answers to Questions — Education: School Places (10 Sep 2018)

Toby Perkins: A few years ago, Brookfield Community School in Chesterfield was an outstanding local authority-run school. Because of the financial pressure the Government put on the school to become an academy, it has done so, but just a few weeks ago it was rated as “requiring improvement” and the academy arrangements have now been sacked. Will the Secretary of State recognise that outstanding schools...

Ask the people of Renfrewshire, whose greenbelt is being attacked by five different planning appeals at the same time, in Kilbarchan, Brookfield, Bridge of Weir—twice—and Elderslie, as well as a host of other communities across the west of Scotland and Scotland as a whole.

Andy Sawford: The waste gasification plant proposed at the Brookfield site on the edge of Corby is causing great local concern.
