asked the Minister of Education what plans are being prepared by her Building Research Department for prefabricated schools or prefabricated classrooms; and what methods are being studied of reducing the steel content of new school building.

Miss Horsbrugh

My Department are co-operating with local education authorities and manufacturers in the development of several prefabricated systems of construction suitable for multi-storey school buildings. As announced in Circular 245, I have asked the Building Research Station to study the use of steel in school building, and to make recommendations.
