HC Deb 18 March 1965 vol 708 cc297-8W
39. Brigadier Clarke

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what curtailment there has been in the school building programme; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Prentice

There has been no curtailment. The major school building programme for 1965–66 will be £80 million compared with £64 million in 1964–65; the minor works programme will be £21 million in 1965–66 compared with expenditure on minor works of about £22 million in 1964–65. The total of work to be started in 1965–66 will therefore be over £100 million compared with about £86 million in 1964–65.
