HC Deb 01 February 1971 vol 810 c276W
Mr. Tinn

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many primary schools in the Northern Region were built before 1902; and how many replacements are in announced building programmes.

Mr. van Straubenzee

The 14 local education authorities in the Northern Region have notified the Department of 335 primary schools which were built before 1903 the replacement or improvement of which is justified because of long-term need for the accommodation.

Announced building programmes (for starts in 1971–72 and 1972–73) include projects for the remodelling or replacement, either wholly or in part, of 64 of these schools.
