HC Deb 15 May 1952 vol 500 c153W
112.Mr. Swingler

asked the Minister of Education what increase in the size of primary school classes she estimates for staffordshire during the next three years, in view of the fact that the revised 1951–53 building programme provides, for 1,000 less primary school places than the original programme.

Miss Horsbrugh

The revised building programme, together with projects already under construction, will provide adequately for the estimated increase in the primary school roll in Staffordshire during the next three years. Although precise calculation is impossible, I am, therefore, satisfied that in general, lack of accommodation will not lead to an increase in the size of classes.
