To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what are his plans for capital expenditure for grant-maintained schools for the financial year 1992–93.

[pursuant to his reply, 23 January 1991, c. 3 10–14]: In my earlier reply I said that I would announce in due course further capital allocations to grant-maintained schools for named projects to start in 1992–93. We have agreed allocations with a total value of £8·8 million. Some projects are phased over two years.Of the 60 schools that submitted bids for consideration in the second round, 38 have received an allocation for a named project. Having now seen all the bids together I have also decided to make allocations to four schools who submitted technology-related bids last year which were unsuccessful in the first round. Together with the announcement I made on Thursday about technology schools initiative allocations we now have 101 schools which have benefited from the TSI.The grant-maintained schools will make good use of the funds allocated to them which will enable them to improve the facilities and working environments for their pupils.The following is a list of the named project allocations.
