HC Deb 11 July 1991 vol 194 cc439-40W
Mr. Bowis

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science, if he will make additional provision for construction costs of the British school in Armenia in 1991–92.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

Parliamentary approval for my Department to make final payments for the Armenian school project will be sought in a winter supplementary estimate for the schools, research and miscellaneous services vote (class XI, vote 1). This will provide mainly for some minor remedial work to complete the contract liabilities. The expenditure will be offset by a saving elsewhere on the vote. Pending Parliament's approval, urgent expenditure will be met by a repayable advance of £7,000 from the contingencies fund.
