HC Deb 15 January 1991 vol 183 cc493-4W
Mr. Kirkwood

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what additional funding is to be made available to meet the additional cost of teacher assessment.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

I shall support through education support grants £10 million of spending on school teacher appraisal in England in 1991–92 and at least £10 million in 1992–93. The figures for subsequent years will be set in due course.
