HC Deb 12 February 2004 vol 417 c1581W
16. Mr. Allen

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what assessment of the needs of Nottingham schools he has made ahead of his decisions on the Schools for the Future school building programme. [154525]

Mr. Miliband

We published our criteria for prioritisation in the Building Schools for the Future programme in July 2003. This covered education need and vision, and readiness to deliver the programme. All authorities wishing to be in the first year of the programme put forward their proposals on that basis. All proposals have been rigorously assessed and we are announcing the outcome of that today.
