HC Deb 21 March 1963 vol 674 c94W
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.
