HC Deb 18 January 1991 vol 183 c596W
Mr. Murphy

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science, following the statement by his predecessor, the hon. Member for Norfolk, South (Mr. MacGregor) how much extra capital moneys have been allocated for educational purposes in 1990–91; and what proportion of these have been allocated to(a) England and (b) Wales.

Mr. Fallon

With the exception of universities, the Department's expenditure programme does not cover education capital expenditure in Wales.

Provision in the DES programme for capital expenditure on schools, colleges and PCFC institutions in England in 1990–91 was some £109 million higher than in 1989–90. Details are set out in the 1990 public expenditure White Paper (Cm. 1011).
