HC Deb 29 June 1999 vol 334 cc121-2W
23. Mr. Russell Brown

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement on capital investment in schools in Scotland. [87537]

Dr. Reid

I expect local authorities to increase capital investment in schools as a consequence of additional capital resources from the New Deal for Schools, the Comprehensive Spending Review, and school Public/ Private Partnership projects.

From 1 July 1999, this will be a matter for the Scottish Parliament.
