HC Deb 19 December 1945 vol 417 cc1501-2W
Mr. Braddock

asked the Minister of Works what orders have been placed for temporary buildings to supply educational needs until permanent building is possible; with what contractors have the orders been placed; and. when it is expected the first temporary buildings will be erected.

Mr. Tomlinson

The temporary buildings to be used for educational purposes are drawn from the stock of huts purchased for general Governmental requirements. The buildings consist of a concrete frame, asbestos roofing, and brick or clay-block walls together with doors and windows. These are not ordered as a complete unit from any one contractor, and numerous contractors are concerned. The first classrooms should be erected in April, 1946.
