§ 5. Mr. Morley
asked the Minister of Education what amount of school building has been sanctioned and is being proceeded with for the year 1951; and how many additional school places it will provide when completed.
§ Mr. Tomlinson
The programme of major school building projects approved for the financial year 1951–52 will provide about 190,000 places at an estimated cost of £40 million.
§ Mr. Morley
is my right hon. Friend reasonably hopeful that, by 1953, places will be provided for the 1,150,000 additional children who will then require them?
§ Mr. Angus Maude
Can the Minister say to what extent the current year's programme has been complicated by arrears of last year's, and whether they have been made up?
