HC Deb 28 October 1985 vol 84 cc305-6W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will make a statement on the level of funding of Liverpool polytechnic.

Mr. Brooke

My right hon. Friend accepted the national advisory body's recommendation that £19.003 million (including £150,000 selective assistance for research) from the advanced further education (AFE) pool for 1985–86 should be allocated to Liverpool city council in respect of Liverpool polytechnic's recurrent expenditure. In addition £1.36 million for polytechnic building projects and £1.49 million for AFE equipment were included in the city's allocation of prescribed capital expenditure.
