To ask the Secretary of State for Education what approvals have been given to grant-maintained schools to dispose of capital assets; and how much of the proceeds, in each case, have been returned to the former maintaining authority.
One grant-maintained school has received my right hon. Friend's consent to the sale of a piece of surplus land. The attribution of proceeds between the school and the former maintaining authority is currently being determined. Another school has received consent for the disposal of part of its premises by annual lease, and for the renewal of this lease.
