§ Mr. David Mitchell
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science (1) which school building projects, included in the original approval programme for Hampshire for the year 1968–69, have been cut by his Department; and how many school places required by the Hampshire Education Authority in the spring of 1969 will not now be available;
(2) which proposed school projects in Basingstoke, Whitchurch and Tadley have been cut on the instructions of his Department from the Hampshire school building programme for 1968–69; how many school places will not be available at the termination of this period, as a result of these cuts; and how many children will be without school places as a result.232W
§ Miss Bacon
The first part of the table below sets out the particulars of projects which were included in the original 1968–69 programme approved for Hampshire but have been deferred following the review announced in Circular 6/68: the second part of the table shows projects which have been added as a result of the review. Projects in the localities named in the second question are marked*. I do not expect that the recasting of the programme will cause children to be out of school.
