HC Deb 04 March 1975 vol 887 cc352-3W
41. Mr. Leslie Huckfield

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he will publish details of the submissions made to his Department by Warwickshire County Council for school building projects to be completed in the next two financial years.

Mr. Armstrong

No. All local education authorities are asked from time to time to submit details of their school building needs; they have been asked for submissions relating to the 1976–77 and 1977–78 programmes by 31st March 1975. Many of their replies form documents of substantial size which it would not be appropriate for my Department to publish.

42. Mr. Skinner

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science when he expects to be able to announce the complete restoration of the 1973 cuts in the school building programme.

Mr. Prentice

I do not expect to make an announcement in the form implied by the Question. I recognise the urgent need to replace or improve some of our old schools and I have made some resources available for projects of this kind. I shall continue to do so in order that our stock of school buildings can be improvef as rapidly as economic circumstances permit.
