§ Mr. David Taylor
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what capital investment in schools in the Leicestershire Education Authority has taken place in(a) 1997–98, (b) 1998–99 and (c) 1999–2000 to date; and what the planned levels are for the next two years. 
§ Mr. Charles Clarke
Table A shows the capital investment the Government have made in schools in Leicestershire in the three years up to 1999–2000. Table B shows the level of investment the Government intend to make for the following two financial years, provided resources allow. This represents commitments arising from existing projects. We cannot indicate what investment we will make in new projects in Leicestershire at this stage.
