HC Deb 13 July 1961 vol 644 cc74-5W
Dr. King

asked the Minister of Education what is the total cost of major school building programmes submitted by local education authorities for the year 1962–63; and how much of these programmes he proposes to approve.

Sir D. Eccles

Local education authorities put to me proposals to the value of £170 million for the 1962–63 programme. The value of work approved to start in that year is £65 million which is the highest total for any year.
