HC Deb 03 July 1968 vol 767 c229W
Mr. Edward M. Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what was the capital value of educational building projects, including further education buildings, on which work was started in 1967; what percentage increase this represents compared with 1966, 1965 and 1964, respectively; and what estimate he has made of the capital value of projects to be starled in 1968.

Mr. Ross

The figures are £ 30.5 million, 20.2 per cent., 407 per cent. and 6.7 per cent. respectively. I cannot yet say how much work will start in the calendar year 1968, but it will be considerably higher than in 1967.
