§ Mr. Litterick
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many school buildings now in use for teaching purposes in the city of Birmingham are (a) more than 100 years old and (b) more than 70 years old; and what are the current plans for the replacement of these buildings.
§ Miss Joan Lestor
The information asked for is not collected by the Department. As regards replacement, it is for the local education authority, under current arrangements, to determine what school building projects it will start within its lump sum authorisation.
