§ Mr. Russell Johnston
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many school buildings currently in use in Scotland were built before 1880; and how many school buildings were constructed after 1965.
§ Mr. Gordon Campbell
There is no central record of school buildings still in use by date of construction. In the period 1st January 1966 to 30th June 1973 the number of new schools completed was 490. This figure does not include alterations and extensions of existing schools.
