§ Mr. Fatchett
To ask the Secretary of State for Education if he will list for each further education college and sixth-form college its revenue budget, and capital allocation for(a) 1990–91, (b) 1991–92 and (c) 1992–93; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Forth
Information on revenue budgets is not currently available in the form requested. I will write to the hon. Member with the figures for the delegated budget for 1990–91 and 1991–92 for each of the LEA maintained or assisted colleges that will be entering the new further education sector on 1 April 1993. These figures are contained in local authorities' budget statements made available under sections 42 and 147 of the Education Reform Act 1988. Information for 1992–93 is not yet available.
I am today placing in the Library details of allocations for major building projects for further education colleges for 1990–91 and 1991–92 and provisional allocations for 1992–93, together with notional supplementary credit approvals to LEAS for 1992–93 in respect of sixth-form colleges. Annual capital guidelines for sixth form colleges for 1990–91 and 1991–92 could not be disaggregated from the information available to the Department. Allocations for minor works and equipments for further education colleges for the three years requested could not be disaggregated without disproportionate cost.
