All of the Department's funding for post-16 learning and skills sector capital investment is allocated to the Learning and Skills Council (LSC). The Council has sole discretion in how it chooses to allocate these funds to further education colleges. This includes decisions about the level of funding that it expects colleges to contribute to capital projects. This is an operational matter for the LSC. Mr. Haysom, the Council's Chief Executive, will write to the hon. Member on this matter. A copy of his reply will be placed in the House Library.
