To ask the Secretary of State for Education when his officials asked the Birmingham city council for more information to justify its bid for capital expenditure in 1993–94 to deal with substandard places; when his officials received this information from Birmingham city council; and when he expects to take a decision on this bid for the financial year 1993–94.

The Department wrote to Birmingham city council on 22 December 1992 and the authority responded on 8 January 1993. Twenty-five other LEAs were asked to provide information on the same issue and not all have yet done so. Nevertheless, I expect to announce my decisions shortly.
