§ Mr. Fallon
The proportion of the potential schools budget delegated to schools varies from 89.10 per cent. in the LEA delegating the most, to 77.97 per cent. in the LEA delegating the least. This wide variation is unacceptable and we are determined that LEAs should delegate more. We have recently proposed that LEAs should delegate at least 85 per cent. of the potential schools budget by 1 April 1993.
