§ Mr. Bill Michie
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what new proposals she has to provide additional funding to local education authorities which have Derwent buildings, with particular reference to Sheffield. 
§ Mrs. Gillan
My right hon. Friend does not propose to base allocations on the specific types of building in an LEA. However, clearly projects at schools with Derwent buildings may meet our published criteria for capital support. Any such bids are considered on their merits against those criteria and in the light of the resources available. Since March 1996, we have allocated capital support totalling £1,833,000 to Sheffield LEA for schools with Derwent buildings.
