HC Deb 24 July 1970 vol 804 cc274-5W
Mr. MacArthur

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what total allocations have been made by him to local authorities for primary and secondary school building, respectively, for the period 1970 to 1972; and how these compare with the local authorities' reports to him of their assessment of their needs.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

£41 million in all; education authorities are not given separate allocations for primary and secondary building. A number of authorities have informed my Department that their allocations are insufficient for all the projects which they wish to start in the period.
