HC Deb 06 February 1969 vol 777 c554
2. Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he has completed his studies of the potential use of surplus military equipment in school classes taking technical subjects; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Edward Short

The study commissioned by the Schools Council has not yet been completed, and it would be premature to make a statement now.

Mr. Dalyell

Before the studies are completed, will special attention be given to the problems of distribution from centres such as Donnington, Edinburgh and elsewhere?

Mr. Short

There are a great many difficulties about this, and I am aware of the special problems of Donnington. The problem is being looked into and I think that we can make some progress on it; I hope so, anyhow.
