HC Deb 26 January 1987 vol 109 c15W
Mr. Ashdown

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science (1) what information is available to his Department on the date of construction of each unremodelled primary school constructed before 1903 and still in use;

(2) if he will publish a list showing for each local education authority in England (a) the number of unremodelled primary schools constructed before 1903, (b) the number of places in such schools, (c) the number of such places in schools considered by the authority to serve areas of educational and social disadvantage and (d) the allocation of capital expenditure 1987–88 made in respect of primary school projects other than provision of basic need; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Dunn

The Department does not have reliable up-to-date information on(a), (b) or (c). On (d) LEAs do not receive capital allocations for individual projects: a single block allocation is made to each LEA in respect of all its schools prescribed capital expenditure.
