HC Deb 10 April 1964 vol 692 cc251-2W
Captain Kerby

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs if he will advise local authorities to show on all rate demands in future a detailed breakdown for buildings, teachers' salaries, etc., under the general heading of education, in view of the fact that this accounts for the greatest single increase in rates.

Mr. Corfield

The rate demand already includes much detail. My right hon. Friend doubts if there would be advantage in advising local authorities to supplement it by breaking down the education rate which is, in any event, a gross figure before allowance is made for general grant towards the cost of this and other services.
