HC Deb 12 December 1978 vol 960 c110W
30. Mr. John H. Osborn

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what are the latest revised allocations for capital expenditure on new schools in the Sheffield metropolitan district; and how this will affect new schools in the Concord and Eccleshall areas.

Miss Margaret Jackson:

The allocations to the Sheffield metropolitan district for capital expenditure starts on school building, at 1978 prices, are as follows:

Financial year Allocation
1978–79 £866,000
1979–80 £549,000
1980–81 £392,000
1981–82 £375,000

The allocations for 1979–80 will be increased shortly by the inclusion of additional resources for improvement and replacement work. The allocations for 1980£81 and 1981£82 will be increased next year. It is for the Sheffield metropolitan district to determine which projects to finance from these allocations.
