HC Deb 19 April 1995 vol 258 cc169-70W
Mr. Blunkett

To ask the Secretary of State for Education if she will estimate the number of hours which staff within her Department spend on issues relating to grant-maintained schools in whole-time equivalents. [19131]

Mr. Robin Squire

Some 77 full-time equivalent posts are concerned wholly or mainly with matters specific to grant-maintained schools. Many other staff in the Department have responsibilities that relate to both grant-maintained and local education authority schools.
