1 Although credit approval was allocated in respect of projects to remove surplus places from schools in the Cleethorpes constituency, the local education authorities (LEAs) arc not obliged to use the credit approval for those schools.
2 We have made other capital allocations to the LEAs covered by the Cleethorpes constituency, but it is for the LEAs to decide which schools will benefit from the use of those allocations.
