HC Deb 25 January 1994 vol 236 cc180-1W
Mr. Pike

To ask the Secretary of State for Education what assessment his Department has made in respect of each local education authority in determining annual capital guidelines for 1994–95 of anticipated capital receipts.

Mr. Forth

LEAs bid for annual capital guidelines in a number of categories, including projects to remove surplus places. The success of bids in that category depends on whether the projects meet our published cost-effectiveness tests. The latter take into account LEAs' own estimates of any capital receipts which may arise. But in no categories are LEAs' ACGs reduced or adjusted in the light of anticipated capital receipts.
