§ Dr. John A. Cunningham
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will name the education authorities in the Northern Region which have informed her Department that the lowest tenders received for building projects currently planned exceed the Ministry allowed costs; what is the number and type of the projects affected; and if she will make a statement.
§ Mr. St. John-Stevas
This information could not be obtained without disproportionate cost. Very few educational building projects in the Northern Region were refused permission to start during the 1972–73 building year because of tenders in excess of the Department's cost allowances.
