§ Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether, in the light of his announcement as to the extra financial provision to be made for school-building necessitated by the raising of the school-leaving age, he will now approve the proposals for improvements in two secondary schools in the Royal Borough of Kingston-upon-Thames for which he withdrew approvals already given when the money intended for work in connection with the school-leaving age was withdrawn.
§ Mr. Edward Short
No. As the right hon. Gentleman said on 24th October, the two projects have nothing whatever to do with the question of raising the school-leaving age. They are, therefore, not connected with the special programme for raising the age which I am authorising.
