HC Deb 21 January 1965 vol 705 c102W
27. Mr. Shepherd

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science, if he will consider the possibility of offering some form of financial inducement to educational authorities who are prepared to make some of their facilities available for use by local authorities or voluntary bodies.

Mr. Denis Howell

My right hon, Friend hopes that authorities and governing bodies will do all they can to make facilities available for outside use, but he does not think it would be appropriate to seek powers to influence the use of their discretion by special financial arrangements.
