§ Sir E. Boyle
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science (1) if he will set out in tabular form the major works allocations for primary schools for each of the years 1965–66 to 1969–70, divided into basic needs and improvements and replacements, respectively;
(2) if he will set out in tabular form the major works allocations for primary and secondary schools for each of the years 1965–66 to 1969–70, excluding allocations for raising the school-leaving age, at present cost limits.
§ Mr. Gordon Walker:
The allocations at present cost limits are:
Basic Needs Primary Improvement/replacement* Total Secondary £m £m £m £m 1965–66 27.1 6.3 33.4 53.3 1966–67 28.6 8.2 36.8 48.8 1967–68 35.3 14.7 50.0 51.5 1968–69†(to date) 28.1 8.3 36.4 43.8 1969–70†(to date) 23.4 7.8 31.2 41.0 *The figures for the first two years are the full value of projects devoted mainly to the improvement or replacement of existing schools. For the remaining years they cover the improvement value only of all projects which combine basic need with improvement. †Sums amounting to £1.3m. and £9.3m. for 1968–69 and 1969–70 respectively have yet to be allocated to specific projects. The figures for these years will be further increased by the proportion of the £16m. for building in educational priority areas which is allocated to major projects.
