§ Mr. A. Lewis
asked the Minister of Education if he is aware that during the past twelve months the purchasing value 148W of the £ sterling has fallen by 1s. 1d.; and to what extent his Department's expenditure on education would have to be increased to ensure that same relative spending power as one year ago.
§ Sir D. Eccles
On the basis stated my Department's expenditure last year would need to be increased by £5.63 million to secure the same spending power this year.
