HC Deb 12 June 1978 vol 951 c348W
Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will give a figure showing the amount of rate support grant, per capita, in each region in Scotland for each year since regionalisation.

Mr. Gregor MacKenzie

The amount of rate support grant on a per capita basis for regional councils and district councils in each region for the years since 1975–76 is shown in the table below.

in secondary schools is expected to fall from about 1,900 to about 1,650 over the next 10 years. My right hon. Friend is satisfied that there are good grounds for introducing the new course at Hamilton College of Education and that this will not lead to compulsory redundancies among technical education staff at other colleges of education, all of which have been asked to give highest priority to applicants for training in that subject.
