Education: East Sussex

Volume 461: debated on Monday 4 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how much capital expenditure there was in the education sector in (a) Eastbourne and (b) East Sussex in each year since 1997. (138026)

The following table shows how much capital funding has been allocated to the education sector in East Sussex LA since 1997. As our capital funding is made available through local authorities (LAs) we are unable to provide figures for Eastbourne, which comes under East Sussex LA.

1 Schools Capital allocations are a mixture of grant and supported borrowing. 2 The 2005-06 SSLP figure is not final as we have yet to receive the audit reports for all of the programmes—we would not expect any significant change however. 3 There is no SSLP expenditure in 2006-07 as all SSLP capital programmes finished in 2005-06.

The Learning and Skills Council (LSC) also make capital allocations to local authorities but are unable to provide details below the level of Sussex LSC. The Higher Education Funding Council (HEFCE) do not provide any capital funding to local authorities.
