PMQs: Peter Aldous calls for funding for Pakefield high school

Speaking during in Prime Minister's Question Time, Peter Aldous calls on the Government to help fund the completion of the newly opened Pakefield high school.

Peter Aldous (Waveney) (Con): Developing the considerable potential for jobs in the energy sector is central to economic recovery in my constituency, as is providing local people with the skills to take on those jobs. Will the Prime Minister ensure that the Government do all they can to fund the completion of the newly opened Pakefield high school in Lowestoft, which will play such an important role in skilling young people in a deprived area?

The Prime Minister: My hon. Friend makes an important point about the skills that that local school will bring. This year Suffolk has an extra £33 million in capital funds. It is obviously for the local authority to decide how to spend that money, but school capital available throughout this spending round and this Parliament amounts to £15.9 billion, so money is there for important school projects.
