Volume 487: debated on Monday 26 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how much his Department spent on (a) primary and (b) secondary school buildings in (i) Hemel Hempstead, (ii) Hertfordshire and (iii) England in 2007-08. (250561)

The Department allocates school capital funding on a local authority basis, which is then prioritised locally in accordance with asset management plans. Accordingly, records are held centrally on a local authority basis, and do not distinguish between primary and secondary schools. Allocations to Hertfordshire in 2007-08 amounted to £50.2 million. Budgeted expenditure for England in 2007-08, including PFI credits, amounted to £6.435 million.
