HC Deb 21 July 1960 vol 627 cc59-60W
69. Mr. Fernyhough

asked the Minister of Education to what extent the recent Government announcement that capital expenditure in the public sector would be restricted next year to this year's level will affect the building programme as far as schools are concerned in general; and whether it will have any particular effect in Durham.
