§ Mr. Rowland
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will give an estimate of the cost of implementing the recommendations of the Albemarle Report in the past year.
§ Mr. Crosland
The Department's expenditure on the Youth Service in 1964–65 was £1,622,000. Local education authority returns for the same year are not yet complete, but their total expenditure is expected to be about £9,850,000.
In addition there were substantial contributions to the cost of the service from voluntary sources.
