HC Deb 13 November 1952 vol 507 c92W
126. Mr. Swingler

asked the Minister of Education what are her estimates of the numbers of new schools on which building work will start in the last six months of 1952 and the first six months of 1953 respectively.

Mr. Pickthorn

As the educational building programme is related to the financial year, my right hon. Friend cannot give estimates for the periods requested. In the third quarter of 1952 work was started on 171 major school building projects. Another 375 such projects in the 1952–53 programme are due to be started by 31st March.
