HC Deb 01 May 1973 vol 855 c267W
Sir Gilbert Longden

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science by how much the school building programme for 1972–73 of £255 million has been eroded by rising costs since April 1972.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

Returns from local education authorities are not yet complete but the great majority of school projects in the 1972–73 programme started before the end of the financial year.
