HC Deb 02 April 1974 vol 871 c342W
61. Mr. Duffy

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what amounts of central Government grant are payable in respect of education services in Sheffield during the current financial year; and what the figure will be in the coming year.

Mr. Oakes

There is no specific provision within the rate support grant to local authorities to cover education services, though the demand for these set-vices is taken into account in calculating the grant. However a new 90 per cent. grant towards the cost of mandatory student awards will be payable from 1974–75 onwards.
