HC Deb 13 July 1961 vol 644 c558
10. Mr. Callaghan

asked the Minister of Education how soon he expects work to start on the new school building for St. Illtyd's College, Cardiff.

Sir D. Eccles

This project is planned to start in the year 1963–64. An earlier starting date will be arranged if opportunity offers.

Mr. Callaghan

Is the Minister aware that the architects have practically finished the drawings, and that the governors of the school are in touch with a firm of contractors who are willing to start work next February. Would the right hon. Gentleman be willing to accelerate the start to that date?

Sir D. Eccles

I should like an earlier starting date, but the authority must find a place in its programme for it. If such an opportunity occurs, we shall take it.
