§ Mr. Bishop
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many schools in Nottinghamshire are still without modern sanitation; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Crosland
I understand from the Local Education Authority that there are 20 schools without waterborne sanitation.40W Work is in progress to replace three of these schools, and will shortly start on a fourth. Conversion to waterborne sanitation is in hand for another three schools. The authority have a programme of improvements to sanitary facilities and this is carried out as and when their capital investment allocations permit.
