To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills

(2) how much public funding money has been spent on repairing schools in Preston in each year since 1997.

Table A shows the schools in the Preston constituency that benefited from investment through the New Deal for Schools (NDS) programme, which ran between 1997–98 and 2000–01.

Since 2001, the majority of capital support has been allocated to schools and local education authorities by formula, and they decide how to invest it in line with their asset management plans. The Department does not, therefore, have complete information about capital investment at constituency level, this should be held at local authority level.

Table B sets out the capital support made by the Department to Lancashire local education authority and its schools since 1997–98, in total and by programme (including all allocations through NDS mentioned in table A).

Notes:

1. For NDS 1 grant was allocated for Lancashire local education authority (LEA) wide projects, part of which was used for building maintainance work and improved security at each of two schools in the Preston constituency. The LEA will be able to say how much was allocated to each school.

2. Where the project includes a package for a number of schools, each school received a share of the funding.
