Since 2010-11 the Department has provided capital support of (a) £30 million in Barnsley, (b) £470 million in South Yorkshire and (c) £20,618 million in England(1). The Department for Education allocates a significant amount of capital funding to local authorities so they have the freedom to decide their school investment needs according to local priorities.
The Department does not collect information on how these funds have been used. As such the Department does not hold complete information on investment at a constituency level.
(1) These figures include capital grant and supported borrowing allocations made to schools and local authorities. They also include provisional figures for 2013/14.
