asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science, pursuant to his reply to the hon. Member for Wolverhampton, North-East on 20 November, if he will list in the Official Reportwhat school buildings could be provided for £399,000.

£160,000 of Wolverhampton's planning allocation for school building in 1980–81 is earmarked for energy conservation: it is for the authority to decide how to use the balance of £239,000. Additional places could be provided on a permanent or temporary basis; existing school buildings could be replaced, remodelled or improved or a combination of such projects could be undertaken. The allocation would permit about 250 primary or 150 secondary places to be built in permanent construction.
