HC Deb 01 February 1971 vol 810 c289W
Mr. Sillars

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if, in recognition of the order to provide accommodation for the raising of the school leaving age and to meet demand for new schools in the Irvine new town area, he will meet the Ayshire Education Committee's request for capital investment allocation of £4.73 million in 1971–72 and £4.02llion in 1972–73.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

Ayrshire Education Authority's request was carefully considered in the light of the resources available and the needs of other authorities and, on 30th December, the Authority was informed that, while I could not make investment available on the scale proposed, I had decided to increase its allocation for 1971–72 by £550,000.
