§ Mr. Brian Parkyn
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what portion of the cost of all secondary education in the borough of Bedford was borne by grants from his Department in each of the past three years.
§ Miss Bacon
Exchequer assistance towards the cost of local authority services, including education, is given through the Rate Support Grant payable by the Ministry of Housing and Local Government as a grant in aid of the general revenues of local authorities. It is not possible to attribute any part of the grant to a particular service or part of a service.
