HC Deb 24 June 1954 vol 529 c61W
Mr. J. Johnson

asked the Minister of Education the total value of the technical college building programme for the year 1954–55; and how the amount authorised corresponds to the original plans advanced by the local education authorities.

Miss Horsbrugh

The estimated cost of the 1954–55 building programme for technical education is a little over£4¾ million. Owing to the different forms in which proposals are submitted, no comparable figure can be given for the amount requested by local education authorities.
