HC Deb 09 March 1966 vol 725 c521W
Mr. Buchan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will announce the value of the school building investment programme for Scotland up to 1970.

Mr. Ross

Education authorities will be authorised to start school building projects to a total value of £24 million a year in each of the three years 1967–68, 1968–69 and 1969–70, an increase of some 40 per cent. over the present level of £17 million a year. Provision is included for the accommodation essential for raising the school-leaving age in 1970–71.
