HC Deb 08 March 2004 vol 418 cc1342-3W
Mrs. Fitzsimons

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what capital funding has been spent on education in the Rochdale constituency since 1997; which schools benefited from additional capital investment in each year; how much funding each received; and how the funding has been spent. [158829]

Mr. Miliband

[holding answer 4 March 2004]: The majority of capital support is allocated to schools and local education authorities by formula and they decide how to invest it, in line with the priorities of their asset management plans. The Department does not, therefore, have complete information about capital investment in individual schools. This information should be held locally.
