HC Deb 23 April 1968 vol 763 c21W
Mr. Farr

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science why adequate car parking facilities are not included in the lay-out in plans drawn up for the construction of new schools and community colleges.

Mr. Edward Short

My Department's cost limits for educational buildings contain an element for car-parking designed to cater for essential users. I do not think that educational funds should be used to provide car-parking accommodation going beyond this. Subject to this limitation it is for local education authorities to decide what to provide.
