CBI comments on new funding for schools building programme

The CBI commented on the Department for Education’s announcement of a further £2bn for the Priority School Building Programme (PSBP) from 2015. 

Nicola Walker, CBI Director for Business Environment, said:

“Businesses will welcome this additional funding which is a critical investment for schools, and will have a knock-on impact in generating growth in the construction sector.

“Funding has been limited, and the building programme has seen slow progress so far, so this renewed push is encouraging.

“It is important that the bidding process delivers value for money for the taxpayer, high-quality school buildings and opportunities for a wide range of firms, including many smaller companies, to win contracts.”
