§ Mr. Barry Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will list the primary schools currently under construction in the East Flintshire constituency; what are the proposed opening dates and their respective estimated costs; and how many will have nursery class departments.
§ Mr. Peter Thomas
The Welsh Office collects information about schools and school buildings by reference to complete local education authority areas, not parliamentary constituencies. I am however informed by the local education Authority that within the East Flintshire constituency a new infants' school at Buckley is under construction and work will start soon on a new infants' school at Hawarden and on extensions to a junior school at Connah's Quay. The estimated costs of these projects are £42,281, £87,438 and £46,241 and the estimated opening dates are April, September and January, 1973, respectively. It is not proposed to attach nursery classes to these three schools.
