§ 40. Mr. Chapman
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department on approximately what date he asked the London County Council to speed the preparation of plans for the rebuilding of Mile Oak Approved School; and on what date he received the plans as approved by the council.
§ Mr. Brooke
In November 1962, the council were authorised to proceed with the planning of two new buildings at this school, and were asked to begin work as quickly as possible. Following discussions between officers of the Home Office and the council, plans for these buildings were submitted for approval in October 1963. Since then, further discussions have been in progress to study how the very high estimated cost can be reduced.
