HC Deb 28 January 1960 vol 616 cc59-60W
76. Mr. Sydney Irving

asked the Minister of Education if he will relax the degree of control exercised by his Department over minor works proposals by local education authorities.

Sir D. Eccles

At present I can hold out no prospect of removing the ceiling on minor works, but there may be ways of improving our procedures in this field, and I shall have an opportunity to discuss this with the representatives of Local Authority Associations next week.
