Volume 467: debated on Thursday 22 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many schools in West Leeds are fitted with sprinkler systems. (166273)

Currently four schools in the constituency of Leeds West are fitted with sprinklers. A further 11 or so schools in West Leeds in the Pudsey and Leeds North West constituencies also have sprinkler systems fitted. Since 2001, Leeds Education have had a policy to fit sprinklers in all new build schools and the new PFI schools being constructed and the new BSF schools in planning will all have sprinkler systems installed. Refurbishment schemes in Leeds are assessed on a case-by-case basis.
