HC Deb 13 November 1969 vol 791 c133W
Mr. Pardoe

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will take steps to ensure that all grants made to primary and secondary schools are equated on a per capita basis.

Miss Alice Bacon

No. It is for maintaining local education authorities to determine the levels of expenditure at their primary and secondary schools. Local authorities' capitation allowances seem to vary a good deal and I hope that the local authority associations will examine this further.
