41. Sir G. de Freitas

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what was the approximate number of primary and secondary school places, respectively, under construction in the East Midlands generally and in the Kettering and Corby area in particular at 1st July, 1970, 1st July, 971 and 1st July, 1972.

Mr. van Straubenzee

As I have previously explained to the hon. Member the Department's records of school building relate to local education authority areas and not to Parliamentary constituencies.

The number of school places under construction in the East Midlands were as follows:

On 30th July, 1970 On 30th July, 1971 On 31st March, 1972 (latest available figures)
Primary 8,240 13,000 16,050
Secondary 16,285 22,270 30,763
