Targeted Capital Fund

Volume 461: debated on Monday 11 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills whether the Targeted Capital Fund will be accepting applications in the 2008-09 financial year. (141500)

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State is considering his priorities for capital investment for 2008-09 to 2010-11, including the Targeted Capital Fund. As part of that, the focus and operation of the Targeted Capital Fund are under review. This is to ensure that investment best meets national education objectives, such as school kitchens to support healthy eating.

We will announce our capital programmes later this year, together with the arrangements for the Targeted Capital Fund.
