HC Deb 14 July 1981 vol 8 cc351-2W
29. Mr. Colin Shepherd

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what he estimates the total cost will be per pupil in the maintained sector in both primary and secondary schools for 1981–82.

Mr. Mark Carlisle

The Government's expenditure plans—Cmnd. 8175—as embodied in the 1981–82 RSG settlement, allow for recurrent expenditure per pupil in cash, including an apportionment of relevant overheads, in England in 1981–82 of about £745 for maintained primary and £1,070 for maintained secondary schools, or about £905 for both primary or secondary schools.
