HC Deb 07 March 1957 vol 566 c89W
58. Mr. Hurd

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Education how many additional places at secondary schools in Berkshire were provided in 1956; and what further progress will be made in 1957 and 1958 towards the provision of full educational facilities for all children in the rural areas of the County.

Sir E. Boyle

Major projects completed in Berkshire in 1956 provided about 700 secondary school places. 840 places in rural areas are likely to be provided in 1957 and the same in 1958. Similar projects to be started this summer will provide a further 840 places.
