§ Mr. Fatchett
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science how much capital expenditure for advanced further education in each local education authority in England and Wales was(a) applied for and (b) spent in each of the last six years, respectively, both in absolute terms and as a percentage of their allocated advanced further education numbers.
I shall reply to the first part of the hon. Member's question as soon as possible. Since information on the outturn of local authority capital expenditure is not split between advanced and non-advanced further education it is not possible to provide a reliable answer to the second part of the question. Capital expenditure by local education authorities in Wales is the responsibility of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Wales.
