Land: Expenditure

Volume 461: debated on Monday 4 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how much has been spent by (a) local authorities and (b) the Government on the purchase of land for educational use in (i) outer and (ii) inner London boroughs in the last 12 months; and what average price was paid per hectare in each case. (138741)

The Department does not maintain records centrally on purchases of land by local authorities for educational use. It is not Government policy to purchase land directly for educational use. Purchases are made at local authority level, or by the institution which owns the educational facility.
