§ 22. Mr. Nicholas Baker
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will make a statement about the funding of the schools outreach programme.
§ Mr. Butcher
My right hon. Friend has offered funding for a three-year pilot project to be conducted by schools outreach. This is dependent upon funding also being provided by a local education authority. In the long term, funding for schools outreach must be a matter for local determination.
