Six contractors stand to benefit by up to £1 billion from the High Court’s ruling that the government acted unlawfully in the way it stopped the Building Schools for the Future scheme.
Judge Mr Justice Holman today said education secretary Michael Gove had to listen to six councils’ cases for a total of 58 school projects to be awarded funding.
The following table shows which contractors have BSF deals with the six councils, and to what extent they could benefit.

|Kent County Council||£255m||Kier|
|London Borough of Newham||£230m||Laing O’Rourke|
|Sandwell Metropolitan Borough||£128m||Interserve|
|Nottingham City Council||Up to £96m||Carillion|
