HC Deb 22 February 1967 vol 741 c277W
66. Mr. Grimond

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the estimated capital cost of providing a place for a child in a prefabricated hostel, on which his Department is budgeting.

Mr. Ross

Overall the cost per pupil may vary from under £2,000 to £2,675. These figures include all the communal and staff accommodation, which is extensive in these hostels, all equipment and furnishings, and allow for the high building costs in remote areas.
