§ 21. Mr. Manuel
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what sum he estimates will be spent on school building in Scotland during 1955.
§ Mr. J. Stuart
On the information available I estimate that the value of school building work which will be carried out by education authorities in 1955 will be of the order of £9 million.
§ Mr. Manuel
Can the right hon. Gentleman indicate the percentage representing new school building as against the minor work of expanding old schools?
§ Mr. Stuart
I can tell the hon. Member that the total value of work likely to be done will be of the order of £10 million, of which over £9 million will be spent upon schools.
