Budget cash on the wayfor schools

9th March 2001 at 00:00
Public services in Scotland, including education, will receive an extra pound;200 million over the next three years as a result of the Chancellor's Budget on Wednesday, Henry McLeish, the First Minister, said.

Mr Brown announced pound;1 billion extra for schools across the UK over the three years, for day-to-day running costs and capital projects.

Some of the money will be paid direct o schools as in previous years and, although Mr McLeish said the Executive would make its own decisions about how to spend the Scottish allocation, cash injections for schools have followed the English pattern in past years.

This would mean Scottish primaries receiving from pound;13,000 to pound;63,000 a year until 2004, while secondaries would have between pound;68,000 and pound;115,000.
