HC Deb 21 January 1965 vol 705 cc105-6W
39. Mr. Gresham Cooke

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science, what are his present plans for increasing financial aid necessary to increase the amount of science teaching in maintained schools and to provide better equipment for that purpose.

Mr. Prentice

Expenditure on science teaching in maintained schools is a matter for the local education authorities. Exchequer assistance is given by means of the general grant, which is not allocated to individual parts of the relevant services.
