I READ with great interest the article "Schools axe plans process a black hole" (January 18)

As a parent of a child affected by all of these proposals I still have many questions which remain unanswered in relation to this.

I READ with great interest the article “Schools axe plans process a black hole” (January 18)

As a parent of a child affected by all of these proposals I still have many questions which remain unanswered in relation to this.

The most important of which is why are these proposals still going forward when in December of this year there is to be a potential boundary change to be agreed by government which will mean that Suffolk County Council could no longer exist?

According to the council's document there is a likelihood that funds of up to £600m will be available for the Building Schools for the Future project.

Why has this decision-making process not been put on hold until after this time thereby enabling those within the new boundary to reconsider the options available in relation to their new future?

It appears that government, nor it's ministers, have the power to step in and stop this process unless the council are acting illegally or in a manner deemed to be unfit.

Let us hope, and pray, that in March, when the school organisational review goes to government for its agreement that somebody does just that.
