HC Deb 09 May 1994 vol 243 c34W
Mr. Hawksley

To ask the Secretary of State for Education what resources are provided for the School Curriculum and Assessment Authority by his Department; and if he will announce his plans for its future.

Mr. Robin Squire

The authority was established in October 1993, and has a substantial programme of work, focused on the current review of the national curriculum, the national tests, and the scrutiny of public examinations. Its total grant from the Department for 1994–95 is likely to be around £30 million.
