§ 21. Mr. Simon Hughes
To ask the Secretary of State for Education what are his proposals for future spending on education in England.
§ Mr. Forth
Planned spending by central Government, subject to review in the public expenditure survey, rises from £10.4 billion in 1994–95 to £11.3 billion in 1996–97. The 1994–95 grant settlement allows for LEAs in England to spend £17.1 billion on education; the 1995–96 settlement will be announced later in the year.
