HC Deb 18 October 1945 vol 414 cc1523-4W
Mr. E. Fletcher

asked the Minister of Education whether the ban on building in the London area has now been lifted in so far as building for educational purposes is concerned.

Miss Wilkinson

I am glad to be able to say, with the concurrence of my right hon. Friend the Minister of Works, that in any case where building must be started if the Government's declared intention of raising the school-leaving age on 1st April, 1947, is to be carried into effect, the ban will no longer apply.
