§ Miss Bacon
A list is given below of the projects which the West Suffolk Local Education Authority submitted under 215W Circular 6/68 for inclusion in the revised 1968–69 school building programme. Starts in 1968.69 have been authorised for the first four of these six projects.
The Authority originally submitted proposals for inclusion in the 1968.69 programme for some 5,900 places at a cost of just over £2.1 million. Details of these proposals were given in my reply to a Question by the hon. Member on 1st May, 1968.
