HC Deb 02 December 1997 vol 302 cc153-4W
26. Mr. Jim Murphy

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what new resources are being provided to improve the fabric of Scotland's schools in the current financial year. [17117]

Mr. Wilson

£8.9 million.

The roads review is taking into account the full range of factors, including traffic growth, which will give rise to pressure for further major improvements over the trunk road network in Scotland.

We shall undertake public consultation early next year on the emerging findings of the review and it is expected that the outcome of the review will be announced in the Summer of 1998.
