HC Deb 18 December 1990 vol 183 c122W
Mr. Gill

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what allocations will be made to local education authorities under the grants for education support and training programme for 1991–92; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

My Department is today writing to all local education authorities in England to inform them of the level of expenditure which I have approved for support in the grants for education support and training programme for 1991–92. The programme will support total expenditure of some £364 million in 1991–92. The programme is summarised in the table.

I am placing in the Library a more detailed table setting out allocations to individual local education authorities in each activity.
