asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he expects the new Arbroath high school to be built, in the light of the existing inadequacies in school building in Arbroath.

Tayside regional council has included a proposed new school to replace the present Arbroath high school buildings in its most recent capital expenditure plan, with a start date in 1981–82 and expenditure falling mainly in 1982–83 and 1983–84.
