HC Deb 31 May 1968 vol 765 c286W
Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science, whether the proposed higher national pool charges for further education and training of teachers will be fully offset by increased Exchequer grants to local authorities.

Mr. Edward Short

The Rate Support Grant Order, 1966 and the Increase Order, 1967 allowed for a big increase in expenditure on further education and teacher training between 1967–68 and 1968–69.
