HC Deb 07 May 1999 vol 330 c467W
Mr. Barry Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales how much cash he has made available to Flintshire local education authority to refurbish schools; and if he will make a statement. [82730]

Mr. Hain

By the end of the 1999 –2000 financial year, Flintshire will have been allocated over £1.45 million as its share of the Additional Capital Funding for Schools initiative.

This is in addition to its normal capital allocations. Flintshire's non-housing Basic Credit Approval for 1999–2000 is £4.582 million. It is for the authority to decide on the level of resources devoted to schools.

Following the transfer of functions this issue will become a matter for the National Assembly.
