§ Mr. Osborne
asked the Minister of Education if he is aware that work on new schools is being held up at Cleethorpes, Scunthorpe and Mablethorpe owing to the delay in the delivery of steel windows; that there is danger of delays occurring for the same reason in the case of nine other schemes in the county; and if he will have the matter investigated and action taken at once.
§ Mr. Tomlinson
I understand that in several of these cases the difficulty is mainly due to the fact that the design and method of construction do not permit detailed orders to be placed sufficiently far in advance of the time when the windows are required on the site. My officers are in touch with the local education authority and will help as far as they can.
