To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many construction projects his Department undertook in each of the last three years for which the capital cost was less than £1.5 million; and what the combined value of these projects was.
The Department does not undertake construction projects directly itself. Rather it allocates capital funding to a variety of bodies, usually local authorities, who procure and manage the projects. The capital allocations by programme for this Department for the last three years are included in the Departmental Annual Report (DAR) Table 8.2 and Annex C refers.
The information requested is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
