Don't forget other schools hit by cuts... Letters.

I FULLY appreciate the gesture Labour councillor Lynette Kelly has when she stood outside the Westwood School expressing her concerns over that project which has suffered cancellation due to Michael Gove's spending cuts.

I fully understand that after the last Labour government's disastrous handling of the economy savings have to be made in public spending, but I do hope that an alternative plan to rebuild the schools concerned, in particular the three special schools, will quickly be put forward by the current Government.

However, I find it interesting that coun Kelly did not mention other schools in the city that are also in need of attention.

For example John Gulson Primary School. Before the recent elections her Labour colleague Jim O'Boyle was pretending that John Gulson would be rebuilt if Labour controlled the council and childishly tried to score party political points.

NO MENTION: Coun Lynette Kelly Since the election he has gone very quiet on this issue, I wonder why? Then there is St Thomas More Primary School that is currently based in temporary classrooms. While secondary schools may be the focus of BSF, primary schools should not be forgotten when lobbying government.
