To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what support has been given to schools to enable them to become accessible to those with disabilities. [85429]

Mr. Charles Clarke

The Schools Access Initiative gives capital support to make more mainstream schools accessible to disabled pupils and those with sensory impairments. It has run each year since 1996 and a total of £25 million had been allocated by March 1999. A further £100 million has been earmarked over the next three years.
