Schools Funding

Mr. Drew: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if he will estimate the cash resources to be paid directly to Stroud schools, by sector, in 2001-02 on the basis of proposals in the pre-Budget report; and if he will list the schools to benefit, giving the sum in each case. [152179]

Jacqui Smith [holding answer 6 March 2001]: The following table shows the estimated allocations made to schools in the Stroud constituency for additional devolved formula capital in 2000-01, following the pre-Budget report. This funding was made available in 2000-01 rather than 2001-02. Gloucestershire local education authority will be able to confirm the final allocations made to non-Voluntary Aided schools. A total of £4.346 million devolved formula capital has been made available to schools in Gloucestershire in 2000-01.

Schools in Gloucestershire will benefit from over £11.5 million through New Deal for Schools Devolved formula capital over the three years 2001-02 to 2003-04, plus a share of the £300 million of additional funds made available by the Chancellor for the programme in his Budget of 7 March.

Overall, central Government support for capital investment in school buildings in England has tripled from £683 million a year in 1996-97 to over £2 billion in 2000-01. It will be £3.5 billion in 2003-04, including grant, credit approvals and Private Finance Initiative credits. There will be central Government investment of £8.5 billion in school buildings in total from 2001-02 to 2003-04.
