HC Deb 10 March 1955 vol 538 cc67-8W
8. Mr. Foot

asked the Minister of Education what extra assistance for school building he is going to give the City of Plymouth in view of the fact that 7,000 places were lost as a result of the bombing.

Sir D. Eccles

Post-war school building programmes for Plymouth have taken account of the loss of school places which occurred during the war. Already one child in three of primary school age is being educated in a post-war school.

10. Mr. Foot

asked the Minister of Education what applications for new school building he has refused for Plymouth in the last two years; and whether he will state his future policy for Plymouth in this connection.

Sir D. Eccles

One proposal for a new secondary technical school. I shall consider sympathetically the Authority's proposals for 1956–57, which I received yesterday.
