§ 27. Mr. Frank Allaun
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will publish her reply to the letter from the hon. Member for Salford, East, regarding the delays in replacing primary schools occurring because of cost limits still in force on school building, and quoting two Salford schools where the lowest tenders exceeded the gross cost limit by £33,503 and £20,718.
§ Mr. St. John-Stevas
Following discussions with the local education authority, the two projects have been approved to start as planned in 1972–73. My noble Friend will be writing to the hon. Member, who is free to publish the letter if he wishes.
