§ Mr. Dobson
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if borrowing by grant-maintained schools is to be included in the public sector borrowing requirement. 
§ Mr. Waldegrave
Grant-maintained schools are not classified as public sector bodies in the Central Statistical Office's national accounts but as private non-profit-making bodies serving persons. Therefore borrowing by grant-maintained schools is not included in the public sector borrowing requirement.
