To ask the Secretary of State for education how much money was given to further education colleges in 1992–93 to prepare them for incorporation; and what provision was made in the conditions of grant for bonuses to senior staff.

Transitional funding of some £18·3 million was made available in 1992–93 by the Further Education Funding Council to institutions joining the further education sector in England. All colleges in England received a minimum of £35,000, which they could use for any purpose that directly assisted with their preparations for independence. The position in Scotland is a matter for my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland.
