§ Mr. Marten
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many children in Oxfordshire are educated in huts erected after the last war or in other huts or in overflow hired premises; how many of such buildings are in use today; how this compares with the national average; and if he will make a statement about future plans.
§ Mr. Crosland
I understand from the local education authority that 230 temporary classrooms are in use at maintained schools in the county, providing accommodation for about 6,500 children. The corresponding national figures are not available. As resources allow, I hope to provide for the replacement of substandard teaching accommodation, whatever the type of construction.
