§ Mr. Spearing
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what procedures he adopts for review of lifespan of semi-permanent or temporary school buildings in areas of stable or growing school population.
§ Mr. Fallon
It is for local education authorities and others directly responsible for the schools to satisfy themselves as to the state of their school buildings. In distributing annual capital guidelines to local education authorities, and in giving capital allocations to the governors of voluntary aided and special agreement schools, my right hon. and learned Friend makes no distinction between permanent, semi-permanent or temporary buildings.
