HC Deb 25 June 1976 vol 913 c692W
Mr. O'Halloran

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will list those schools in England and Wales where major improvements, building or updating are envisaged during the next three years.

Miss Margaret Jackson

It is for local education authorities to decide what projects they wish to undertake within the lump sum allocations for school building made to them by my right hon. Friend. Authorities in England have so far informed the Department of 422 primary and secondary school major building projects—including extensions, adaptations and new schools—which they propose to start within their allocations for 1976–77. Allocations for later years have yet to be announced. Perhaps my hon. Friend will let me know of any particular areas or projects he has in mind.

School building in Wales is a matter for my right hon. and learned Friend the Secretary of State for Wales.
