HC Deb 13 March 1963 vol 673 c173W
Sir Richard Glyn

asked the Minister of Education by what authority he compels a county council to increase its expenditure on educational building to a level which the county council considers to be unnecessary in the local circumstances, or to be calculated to cause hardship to the ratepayers concerned; and to what extent these powers have been exercised with regard to Dorset County Council in the last five years.

Sir E. Boyle

This has not occurred, either in Dorset or elsewhere.
