HC Deb 06 March 1996 vol 273 c228W
Mr. Hall

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what assessment she has made about the projected savings to the Funding Agency for Schools in respect of the introduction of private sector funding for grant-maintained schools' capital expenditure. [18836]

Mrs. Gillan

[holding answer 4 March 1996]: The contribution of private sector funding to capital expenditure on grant-maintained schools will depend upon the decisions of individual school governors and the private sector. We have made it clear that capital grant from the Funding Agency for Schools will continue to ensure that essential work is funded at GM schools.
