This information is not held centrally in the form requested. Much of the Department's capital resources have been allocated to schools and local authorities by needs related formulae, so that investment decisions could be taken locally in accordance with locally prepared asset management plans. Capital allocations since 1997 for these local authorities and their schools are set out as follows:

£ million
Kingston-upon-Hull( 1) East Riding of Yorkshire( 1)
1996-97 0.9 0.5
1997-98 (2)5.4 1.3
1998-99 2.6 5.2
1999-2000 6.3 (3)37.0
2000-01 9.5 16.2
2001-02 14.4 11.2
2002-03 13.6 16.2
2003-04 10.7 20.4
2004-05 10.9 21.6
2005-06 8.4 17.0
2006-07 6.5 26.3
2007-08 6.7 14.8
(1) Annual fluctuations are largely due to some programmes, such as the Private Finance Initiative and the Targeted Capital Fund, recording the value of projects in the year the project began, while actual payments are phased over a longer period.

(2) Includes PFI project of £3.9 million in 1997-98.

(3) Includes PFI project of £26 million in 1999-2000.

In addition to the above investment, Kingston-upon-Hull local authority joined the Building Schools for the Future programme in wave two. East Riding of Yorkshire is currently due to join the programme in one of the waves seven, eight or nine. Building Schools for the Future aims to renew or remodel all secondary school provision over the lifetime of the programme. The programme is expected to have 15 waves, with wave one starting in 2005-06.
