§ Mr. Churchill
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what was the total capital expenditure on schools in the North-West of England and the percentage of national expenditure on schools which this figure represented in the financial year 1978–79; and what were the equivalent figures in the year 1973–74 updated to current prices.
§ Mrs. Shirley Williams
Capital expenditure figures for 1978–79 are not yet available. For this reason and because of the different administrative structure that existed in the North-Western region prior to local government reorganisation on 1 April 1974, the figures requested by the hon. Member are not readily available.
