Schools: Finance

Volume 470: debated on Tuesday 8 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government whether funds raised by the Milton Keynes tariff on developers and landowners may be used for the capital funding of new schools. (175610)

Yes, the Milton Keynes Tariff makes a significant contribution towards the capital cost of new schools for the expansion areas in Milton Keynes and requires free land to be provided by the developers for school sites in these areas.

The precise amounts towards each school are set out in the Milton Keynes Partnership Committee annual business plan which also details other funding sources.
