§ 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.
