§ Mr. Thomas Cox
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what major and minor school projects in the London borough of Wandsworth will be delayed as a result of Government cuts in public expenditure.
§ Mr. Raison
The Department's Circular 15/73 announced that of major school projects only those to meet basic needs for additional places would be eligible for approval between 1st January 1974 and 30th June 1975. Improvement projects at St. Faith's Church of England Primary School and the Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Primary School will therefore be delayed until after 1975.
The local education authority, in this case the Inner London Education Authority, is responsible for deciding which miner projects should be carried out within its minor works allocation.
