Motion text

That this House welcomes the coalition Government's allocation of an additional 600 million to local councils to tackle the shortfall of available pupil places; recognises that this has meant an extra 12.5 million for Manchester on top of the 15.1 million that has already been allocated; notes that the number of primary school places in South Manchester has failed to keep apace with rises in the local population; further recognises that parents in some parts of South Manchester often struggle to find places in any local school, nevermind the school of their choice; and therefore calls on Manchester City Council to respond to the needs of local children by building a new primary school in South Manchester.
