Schools: Construction

Volume 501: debated on Wednesday 2 December 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what response he has received from North East Lincolnshire local authority in respect of his proposal to bring forward from 2010-11 to the current financial year capital funding for building schools; and what proportion of the available funding North East Lincolnshire local authority has taken up. (301767)

North East Lincolnshire bid for, and is taking up, an advance of £775,000 Primary Programme funding from 2010-11 in the current financial year. If the local authority and Voluntary Aided schools had applied for the maximum available advances, they would have received advances of £5,378 for Primary Capital, £1,979 for Modernisation, and £212,000 in respect of Voluntary Aided schools.

In common with all other authorities, all maintained schools in North East Lincolnshire were allocated a Devolved Formula Capital advance calculated as 40 per cent. of the estimated 2010-11 allocation. In the case of the local authority and Voluntary Aided schools, this amounted to £1,284.
