§ Mr. Spearing
To ask the Secretary of State for Education if she will make a statement concerning anomalies in the funding of London boroughs for salaries of teachers in receipt of inner London allowances; and what actions Her Majesty's Government have taken, or intend to take, on any necessary adjustments.
§ Mr. Robin Squire
London boroughs already receive appropriate compensation in their education standard spending assessments for the overall extra labour and other costs they need to incur to deliver a standard level of service. The Government, in consultation with the local authority associations, will continue to review the standard spending assessment methodology annually.
