HC Deb 20 July 1982 vol 28 cc131-2W
Mr. Colvin

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science when he expects to publish full details of the separate block grant for the Education Service.

Sir Keith Joseph

Two papers on this subject by the local authority associations and the Government were prepared for a meeting of the Consultative Council on Local Government Finance on 23 June, and I have arranged for copies to be placed in the Library; no final decision about this or any other matter arising from the Green Paper, "Alternatives to Domestic Rates" has yet been taken by the Government.
