HC Deb 13 May 1954 vol 527 c1414
23. Mr. Remnant

asked the Minister of Education to state the all-in cost of the Wokingham Secondary School.

Miss Horsbrugh

I regret that the final accounts for this school are not yet settled, but negotiations are being pressed on so as to get a final figure with the least possible delay.

Mr. Remnant

As this school has been in occupation by children for educational purposes for over a year, will my right hon. Friend give an assurance that this information will be speedily obtained?

Miss Horsbrugh

Yes, it certainly will be, but I think my hon. Friend will realise that even when the children are in a new school there is generally a certain amount of work still to be done. Very often 18 months and sometimes slightly more are required before the final account can be approved.
