§ Mr. Robin Squire
The direct administrative costs incurred centrally by the Department for Education and Employment for staff involved in schools work in England in 1995–96 were:
- (i) £2.46 per pupil
- (ii) £750 per school
- (iii) £0.41 per head of population
Comparable information for earlier years is difficult to obtain because of changes in the organisation of the Department. Provision of this information would incur disproportionate cost.
