HC Deb 19 March 1970 vol 798 c192W
Mr. Monro

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what was the percentage increase in public expenditure at 1969 prices on secondary school improvements between 1964–65 and 1969–70 compared with the previous five years.

Mr. Ross

After allowing for price increases, the value of building work done on alterations and extensions to existing secondary schools is estimated to have been some 9 per cent. greater in the calendar years 1964 to 1969 than in the preceding five years. Information for the financial year 1969–70 is not yet available.
