Ministers step it up with PPP

4th June 2004 at 01:00
The Scottish Executive showed no signs of bowing to criticism of its public private partnership (PPP) strategy for schools as it announced on Monday that bids from four more councils - West Dunbartonshire, Falkirk, Moray and Scottish Borders - had been accepted. PPP investment is now worth more than pound;2.2 billion in Scotland. Peter Peacock, the Education Minister, revealed the details during a visit to Vale of Leven Academy in West Dunbartonshire, where the authority will receive pound;100 million.

Falkirk, first in the field with PPP schools, will receive pound;70 million to replace its four remaining secondary schools, while Borders and Moray will have pound;50 million apiece.
