HC Deb 22 February 1962 vol 654 c64W
43. Mr. W. Hamilton

asked the Minister of Education if he will make a statement on the progress so far made in the establishment of building consortia in the field of school building.

Sir D. Eccles

The first consortium known as C.L.A.S.P. is in its fourth year. Ten L.E.A.s are members and the annual building programme has grown from £3 million to £8 million. A second consortium known as S.C.O.L.A., with five members, is well advanced in designing a new system of construction and expects to have a programme of about £1 million this year.
