HC Deb 08 July 1954 vol 529 cc182-3W
Colonel Clarke

asked the Minister of Education the total acreage of playing fields laid out for secondary schools in the counties of Surrey, Kent, Sussex and Hampshire during the years 1952 and 1953, respectively; and the cost, stated separately; of acquisition and of subsequent laying-out.

Mr. Pickthorn

My right hon. Friend regrets that this information is not readily available in the Department, and she does not consider that the detailed research and inquiry that would be necessary to obtain it would be justified.
