HC Deb 23 April 1968 vol 763 c21W
Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether the proposed sports centres to be incorporated in new schools will have floodlighting to enable adults to use outside facilities throughout the year.

Mr. Denis Howell

The incorporation of sports centres in new schools depends on the co-operation of the local authorities responsible for education and community facilities and on joint planning within the combined resources available to them. It is Government policy to encourage the maximum use of available resources in this way. Authorities wishing to submit proposals of this kind will no doubt bear in mind the desirability of floodlighting outdoor facilities.
