HC Deb 10 November 1938 vol 341 c289
50. Mr. Tomlinson

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education whether the restriction of capital expenditure on the provision of secondary education outlined in Circular 1464 is applicable to all local education authorities, or whether it applies only to those authorities who seek an extension of time for the carrying out of reorganisation schemes in connection with elementary education?

Mr. Lindsay

The temporary restriction on the replacement, improvement and enlargement of existing secondary schools is of general application, but the hon. Member will be aware that the restriction may be waived in exceptional circumstances.

Mr. Tomlinson

Would the Parliamentary Secretary make that circular available to Members of this House who desire information?

Mr. Lindsay

Yes, Sir, I shall be very glad to let any hon. Member have a copy of the circular.
