HC Deb 22 July 1968 vol 769 cc38-9W
Mr. J. E. B. Hill

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what estimate: he has made of the number of primary and of secondary schools which need education priority area treatment.

Miss Bacon

None. It is not practicable to try and list such schools centrally. The procedure adopted has been to decide centrally the resources available and the criteria of need, and then to seek bids from local education authorities and to select from among them those schools where the needs are judged to be most urgent.
