§ Mr. Ridsdale
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether the dates both for the new primary school at Wivenhoe and the other school building projects in North-East Essex are still firm, in view of the recent economy cuts.
§ Mr. Crosland
In accordance with the terms of the announcement made by my right hon. Friend, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, on 27th July school building will not be affected by the special measures which local authorities are being asked to take. I understand from the Essex Local Education Authority that the dates for the primary school at Wivenhoe which were given to the hon. Member on 1st July are unchanged and that it has no plans to delay other school building projects in Essex.
