HC Deb 12 July 1978 vol 953 c591W
Mr. Gwynfor Evans

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what proportion of the teaching accommodation in Wales and England, respectively, date from before 1903.

Miss Margaret Jackson

According to a 10 per cent. sample survey held in 1975, the proportion of school places built before 1903 in England and Wales is estimated to have been:

England Wales
Primary school places 20 27
Secondary school places* 4 5
Primary and secondary school places 13 19
* For secondary places the difference in proportion between England and Wales is within the margin of error of the sample survey.
