HC Deb 05 February 1974 vol 868 c287W
Mr. Hattersley

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will publish in the OFFICIAL REPORT a revision of the figures and tables which appear in the White Paper "Education A Framework for Expansion". which takes account of recent cuts in the education budget.

Mr. Raison

No. The detailed effects on particular education programmes of the reductions in education expenditure during 1974–75 announced by the Chancellor of the Exchequer on 17th December 1973 have already been explained to the House. As short-term measures these reductions will not in themselves affect the tentative expenditure projects for 1981–82 in the last table of Cmnd. 5174 though, in accordance with paragraph 164, the scale and pace of some of the measures announced in it are currently under review in the light of new demographic and other statistical data.
