Schools: Capital Investment

Volume 462: debated on Wednesday 4 July 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what capital expenditure has been allocated to (a) secondary schools and (b) primary schools in each local authority area in England in each of the last five years for which information is available. (146685)

The Department does not maintain central records which analyse, for each capital funding stream, the proportion that relates to (a) secondary schools and (b) primary schools in each local authority area. This is because local authority formulaic funding is not ring-fenced. When received by each local authority, it decides locally what proportion of formulaic funding shall be allocated to secondary schools and to primary schools.

The following table shows total schools capital allocations in each local authority area in England in each of the last five years.
