HC Deb 18 April 2000 vol 348 c418W
Mr. Benton

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what further plans he has for using Capital Modernisation Fund allocations in schools. [119722]

Jacqui Smith

We are pleased to announce that £60 million is being allocated from the Capital Modernisation Fund to tackle deficiencies in secondary school science over the next two years. The initiative will do this by funding the construction of imaginative and effective 21st century laboratories at those schools most in need.
