§ Mr. Hooley
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will publish in theOfficial Reportinformation on the spending per capita on school books in each of the EEC countries, including the United Kingdom, distinguishing so far as possible between primary and secondary education.
§ Miss Margaret Jackson
In England and Wales for the financial year 1977–78, local education authority expenditure per pupil on school text and library books was £3.70—at 1978 survey prices—in primary schools and £6.40 in secondary schools. There are no comparable figures available for the United Kingdom as a whole or for other EEC member States.
