HC Deb 17 October 1994 vol 248 c24W
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.
