School Buildings (Hansard, 18 November 1987)
HC Deb 18 November 1987 vol 122 c560W
Mr. David Nicholson

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether information about the gross floor area of school buildings, capacity, areas of temporary accommodation and costs of improvement for individual local education authorities can be obtained from the data used to compile his Department's recently published survey of school buildings.

Mr. Dunn

No. The survey was designed to provide information only on a national basis. For representative coverage of the schools within each local education authority, a much larger sample would have been required, at greatly enhanced cost.
