§ 86. Mr. Wade
asked the Minister of Education what is the total value of the proposed school building programmes he has received from local authorities in Scotland, the North-East and North-West of England, respectively, for the year 1964–65; and what Government contributions have been promised toward the cost of these programmes.
§ Mr. Chataway
School building programmes for Scotland are a matter for my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland. For the 1964–65 school major building programme local education authorities in the North-East submitted proposals to the value of £21.3 million and those in the North-West proposals to the value of £28.5 million. My right hon. Friend has so far approved projects amounting to £5.2 million in the North-East and £8.5 million in the North-West.
