§ Mr. Dempsey
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what consideration he has given to the extension of Rosehall Secondary School, and what is the nature of the proposed extension, the estimated cost, and the starting and finishing dates of the project.
§ Mr. Gordon Campbell
A proposal by Lanarkshire Education Authority to extend this school to make it a 4-year comprehensive school for 1,000 pupils was approved in principle in October, 1970. The present estimated cost is £250,000 and the Authority's aim is to start work in June, 1972, and to have the extension ready by January, 1974. In the longer term it plans to extend the school further to make it an all-through comprehensive school for 1,800 pupils.
