§ Mr. Swingler
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what proportion in value of the proposals put forward by Staffordshire for the 1965–66 schoolbuilding programme he approved; and what proportions of the projects he approved were for primary and secondary education, respectively.
§ Mr. Hogg
The value of proposals put forward for the 1965–66 major building programme was £6,537,000, and the value of projects programmed was 193W £1,817,000. Of this total, primary projects accounted for £913,000 and secondary projects for £904,000. The proportion of projects programmed was thus 28 per cent., in approximately equal shares for primary and secondary projects.
