Byles quashes Keynesian role hope for BSF

  • Comment
Any moves to accelerate the government’s flagship Building Schools for the Future programme to help stimulate the nation’s economy are months away at least, LGC has learned.

Tim Byles, chief executive of Partnerships for Schools, the delivery body for the government’s£45bn programme to rebuild or refurbish all English secondary schools by 2020, said he expected no such developments this financial year.

“We’ll have to see the range of policies coming out of the budget for the next year, and the government’s long-term spending plans,” he said.

He added the programme was scheduled to “accelerate quite sharply” over the next three years, regardless of any new Keynesian stimulus packages.
