§ 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.
