HC Deb 21 February 1996 vol 272 cc206-7W
Mr. Dykes

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if she will receive a deputation to discuss the problems arising from school budget restrictions in the maintained schools sector in the constituency of the hon. Member for Harrow, East. [15877]

Mr. Robin Squire

It is for Harrow council to decide how to make best use of the 3.7 per cent. increase in its education standards spending assessment which the Government have provided for 1996–97. My right hon. Friend and her ministerial colleagues are always willing to consider requests to see deputations led by hon. Members.
