§ Mr. Barry Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will issue guidance to local education authorities that funds raised from the sale of surplus land at a school should be spent on improvements at that school.
§ Mr. David Hunt
I have no plans to interfere with local education authorities' freedom to reinvest capital receipts derived from the disposal of school land as they see fit or to alter the present legal requirement that 50 per cent. of such receipts be set aside for the redemption of debt.
