§ Mr. Forman
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will set out in tabular form the proportion of total recurrent income derived by the public 526W sector institutions of higher education from central Government, local government and private sources of finance, respectively, in each year from 1970 to the latest available date.
§ Mr. Walden
The information requested is not available. The majority of public sector institutions of higher education are maintained by local authorities to which the Government pay a block grant in support of expenditure on all services.
