HC Deb 15 December 1965 vol 722 c283W
112. Mr. Rankin

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland why he has reduced the sum to be spent on building the new Govan High School by £36,000, in view of the need for providing better accommodation and amenities for both staff and pupils to meet the increasing requirements of modern education.

Mr. Ross

The initial tender cost of this project greatly exceeded the estimate I had approved as a maximum cost. The accommodation and amenities planned for the school have not been affected by the reductions.
