Heartlands Development, Haringey

Volume 450: debated on Monday 23 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what the cost per bidder is of the three day consultancy offered to bidders for sponsorship of the new school to be built on the Heartlands development in Haringey; how much the Government have provided to Haringey council for that process; and if he will make a statement. (94136)

Since 1 September local authorities wanting to establish a new secondary school have been required under Section 66 of the Education Act 2005 to invite bids from potential promoters. Each potential promoter is entitled to receive three days' consultancy support funded by the Department to help them prepare their bids and we have allocated a budget of £1,500 to cover the cost of each support package.

As the Department is providing this consultancy support directly to potential promoters we have not transferred any funding to Haringey.
