HC Deb 18 March 1970 vol 798 c377
21. Mr. Brewis

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when the second phase of the building programme at the Douglas-Ewart High School, Newton Stewart, will be completed.

Mr. Millan

I have nothing to add to the Answer given to the hon. Gentleman's Question on 19th January about this project.—[Vol. 794, c. 71.]

Mr. Brewis

How can this school be ready to be the only secondary school in the area and ready for the raising of the school-leaving age in 1972 if its urgent building programme is being delayed by the hon. Member's Department?

Mr. Millan

It is not being delayed; we have not received proposals from the authority. In any case, the first phase together with the existing buildings will provide sufficient places for the raising of the school-leaving age.
