§ Mr. Barry Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales how he proposes to assist those local education authorities that have initiated programmes of major repairs to schools.
§ Mr. Richards
My support for local authority expenditure is in the form of revenue support grant arid permission to borrow. It is for each local authority to determine how its available resources are allocated between the services it provides, in the light of its statutory responsibilities and its perception of local needs and priorities.
