HC Deb 13 February 1973 vol 850 c311W
47. Mr. Marks

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will take steps to monitor the proposed expenditure of local education authorities for 1973–74 in order to compare their proposed expenditure with that allowed for under the Rate Support Grant Order.

Mr. Graham Page

Information about expenditure on education or other individual services will only be sought where the total expenditure figure appears excessive.
