§ 27. Mr. Gerrard
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what representations his Department has received on the level of funding under section 11 of the Local Government Act 1966 for the financial year 1993–94 and subsequent years.
§ Mr. Peter Lloyd
We have received a number of representations about future levels of section 11 funding from hon. Members, local authorities and representative organisations, individual schools and colleges, professional associations and other interested bodies such as racial equality councils. My right hon. and learned Friend and I regret that in the present economic circumstances it is not possible to sustain throughout the next three years the level of expenditure that had earlier been planned.
