HC Deb 18 March 1952 vol 497 c186W
71. Mr. Ross

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how his present plans for school building will affect the shortage of school places in 1953 and 1954, in infants, primary and secondary departments of Scottish schools.

Mr. J. Stuart

The delay in starting buildings not yet begun is not likely to affect the number of new school places becoming available in 1953. It is not possible so far in advance to give any estimate of what the actual shortage of places in infant, primary and secondary departments respectively will be in 1954.
