HC Deb 28 July 1959 vol 610 cc286-7
4. Dr. Dickson Mabon

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he estimates the projected technical college at the Dalrymple Street site in Greenock will be started and completed.

Mr. Maclay

I have approved in principle the education authority's proposal for a technical college, but it has still to submit proposals for a site and estimated dates for the building work.

Dr. Mabon

May we have an assurance from the right hon. Gentleman, since this matter concerns both his constituency and mine, that the acute need for this college will be recognised and that sanction will be given as soon as proposals are submitted?

Mr. Maclay

There are many details to be gone into before we can give a positive assurance about when sanction will be given, but, as the hon. Member knows, I am very anxious to get on with it as quickly as we can.
