HC Deb 04 April 1979 vol 965 c713W
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.
