HC Deb 13 July 1961 vol 644 c562
17. Mr. Hayman

asked the Minister of Education what proposals have been made by the Cornwall Education Committee for building projects in Falmouth, Cornwall, for 1963–64.

Sir D. Eccles

None for 1963–64, but the local education authority has asked for a new grammar school for Falmouth in the 1964–65 programme. I can give no decision on this yet.

Mr. Hayman

Will the Minister bear in mind that a new grammar school is badly needed in Falmouth because both of the existing schools have most inadequate accommodation? Will he also take into account that improvements are badly needed at the technical college? The fact that these have been delayed has caused serious unrest among th 3,000 trade unionists in Falmouth. Will he consider that point, too?

Sir D. Eccles

I was glad to have a chance to hear about these difficulties when I was in Cornwall last week-end.

Sir C. Osborne

Will my right hon. Friend bear in mind that practically every Question that he has answered today has asked him to spend more money? Will he bear in mind that we are facing an economic crisis—[Interruption.]

Mr. Speaker

Order. That question is too wide of the Cornwall Education Committee's programme for 1963–64.
