HC Deb 05 August 1965 vol 717 cc418-9W
Mr. Younger

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will give details of which projects in the school building programme of Ayrshire County Council will now be postponed or cancelled as a result of the recent economic measures.

Mr. Ross

School building programmes are not affected by the measures recently announced by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer.

Lady Tweedsmuir

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland which local authorities will be affected by the decision to contain the existing school programmes within the present financial estimates, bearing in mind the rise in costs.

Mr. Ross


Mr. Bruce-Gardyne

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether the Government's recent economy measures will lead to the curtailment or postponement of any works scheduled under the current two-and-a-half years' schoolbuilding programme for the county of Angus, in view of the rise in costs which is likely to have taken place before this programme has been completed.

Mr. Ross
