HC Deb 13 May 1952 vol 500 c1108
39. Mr. Pryde

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the number of new schools to be completed in Midlothian and Peebles in 1952.

Mr. Henderson Stewart

I expect 10 classrooms to accommodate 450 children in new schools to be ready for use before the end of 1952, but it is not possible to say when the schools will be completed.

Mr. Pryde

Knowing the earnestness of the hon. Gentleman in his job, might I invite him to visit the schools in North Midlothian so that he can see the insanitary conditions for himself?

Mr. Stewart

I shall be very glad to accompany the hon. Gentleman on such a tour.
