HC Deb 26 July 1990 vol 177 c456W
Mr. Hind

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what proportion of Lancashire county council's education budget was spent on the running of the education department's central and area offices; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Eggar

Lancashire's return of expenditure for 1988–89 to the Department of the Environment shows that the authority spent about 2 per cent. of its gross education budget for the year on central education administration.
