HC Deb 05 November 1976 vol 918 cc727-8W
Mr. Heffer

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what financial aid has been given for educational projects, including schools and other educational institutions, to Liverpool over the past 10 years.

Miss Margaret Jackson

Details of capital expenditure on the education service by the Liverpool local education authority in the last 10 years are as follows:

Financial Year £000 (Outturn Prices)
1966–67 2,828
1967–68 2,743
1968–69 2,920
1969–70 2,420
1970–71 2,907
1971–72 3,706
1972–73 3,040
1973–74 3,152
1974–75 3,986
1975–76 4,217

These amounts represent actual capital expenditures, including the cost of land, building, professional fees, equipment and furniture, vehicles, plant and machinery at all the authority's schools and other educational institutions. Financial aid in respect of this expenditure was provided through rate support grant, which is, however, paid to a local authority in aid of the revenues of the authority generally, and no part of it can be attributed to specific items of expenditure.
