HC Deb 06 February 1969 vol 777 c143W
47. Sir W. Teeling

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science why, for a further year, a nil allocation has been made to Brighton for its Youth Service programme; and if, in view of the shortage of public baths in Brighton, he will consider giving this matter priority on additional funds becoming available during the year.

Mr. Denis Howell

I regret that, in common with a large number of other local education authorities, Brighton has not been allocated a project in the Youth Service Building Programme for 1969–70. There is considerable pressure on these limited resources, but I will certainly bear in mind the priority accorded by the authority to two projects, one of which consisted of a swimming bath.

Subject to the authority continuing to give this project first place in its list of priorities for its 1970–71 Youth Service building programme, it will stand a good chance of being granted an allocation.
