§ Dr. Boyson
Information about the ages of schools in Leicestershire is not readily available in the Department, and I suggest that my hon. Friend contacts the local education authority. The latest available national 735W information, derived from the 1975 school building survey, which refers to maintained schools in England and Wales, is as follows:
Schools with permanent teaching accommodation built Entirely Before 1903 Before 1903 plus some 1903 to 1945 Before 1903 plus some 1946 or later‡ Primary*—number 5,450 620 2,220 per cent 23.4 2.7 9.5 Secondary†—number 90 60 480 per cent 1.8 1.2 9.5 (*) Including middle deemed primary (†) Including middle deemed secondary (‡) Including schools with permanent buildings dating from all three periods: pre-1903, 1903–1945 and post-1945.
