§ Mr. Rowlands
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales (1) what was the indicative capital allocation for education in Mid-Glamorgan(a) for 1991–92 and (b) 1992–93; and what information he has of the actual expenditure by Mid-Glamorgan;
(2) what calculation he has made in capital appraisals for Mid-Glamorgan in 1993–94 for the development of bilingual education.
§ Sir Wyn Roberts
Welsh local education authorities do not receive indicative capital allocations for education services. County councils receive annual basic credit approvals which are unhypothecated to particular services. Spending priorities between services and within services, including spending on bilingual education, are a matter for them. Actual capital expenditure on education services by Mid Glamorgan county council, including any financed from the authority's own resources, in 1991–92 was reported at £9.014 million and for 1992–93 is forecast by the local authority to be £8.226 million.
