HC Deb 15 March 1994 vol 239 c625W
Mr. Hardy

To ask the Secretary of State for Education what was the cost to public funds of the education of an average pupil at an average grant-maintained and at an average local authority secondary school in 1992–93.

Mr. Robin Squire

The average recurrent spending per pupil in 1992–93 was £2,450 for grant-maintained secondary schools and is estimated as being £2,182 for local authority maintained secondary schools, reflecting the greater responsibilities of the former.
