HC Deb 04 March 1975 vol 887 cc357-8W
Mr. Gwilym Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what financial provision is being made to meet the curriculum development and staff training needs arising from the work of the Technician Education Council and the Business Education Council; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Prentice

Individual items such as curriculum development and staff training are not estimated separately when total relevant expenditure by local authorities is calculated for the purpose of rate support grant. A substantial amount of the work of curriculum development is likely to be undertaken by the two councils themselves.
