Compromise deal expected on La Mare following a no vote for education review

A compromise deal on the La Mare de Carteret rebuild is expected this morning.

The deal could satisfy both Education and Treasury officials who are divided on the £60 million redevelopment.

Deputy Ellis Bebb's calls for a wider review of secondary education, before the rebuild goes ahead, were rejected by states members yesterday.

The amendment to the Education Department's proposals lost narrowly by 24 votes to 21.

It's not clear if the new deal will address some of the concerns raised by the Treasury or Deputy Bebb, who said a recent independent review into the redevelopment plan left too many unanswered questions.
