HC Deb 24 February 1978 vol 944 c818W
Mr. Orbach

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if, further to the letter which she has received from the National Association of Schoolmasters, Stockport branch, she is in a position to supply the precise amount of rate support grant which has been allocated to the Stockport Metropolitan Council for education.

Mr. Oakes

No. The rate support grant is not earmarked for particular local government services. It is a block grant given in aid of local government expenditure as a whole.
