Further Education: Capital Investment

Volume 475: debated on Thursday 15 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills how much funding for capital expenditure will be available to further education colleges during the current spending review period. (205678)

This Government will be investing a record £2.3 billion in the modernisation and renewal of the further education estate during the current CSR period—compared to ear-marked expenditure of zero pounds in 1997.

This builds on the £2.4 billion invested in the previous 10 years and will enable us to continue the ‘once in a generation’ opportunity we have to build world-class further education facilities so the sector can deliver world-class skills.
