HC Deb 04 December 1947 vol 445 c86W
35. Mr. G. Thomas

asked the Minister of Education whether and to what extent the proposed reduction in capital expenditure will affect the programme of school building work in Wales, approved in principle by his Department.

Mr. Tomlinson

The review by the Government of the national programme of capital investment does not involve any radical changes in the educational building programmes for 1947 and 1948. I am sending my hon. Friend a copy of Circular 155 in which local education authorities were informed of this decision and given some guidance with regard to the rate at which the various items should be expected to proceed.
