HC Deb 02 June 1997 vol 295 c76W
Mr. Ancram

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what is his policy towards the funding of grant-maintained schools; and if he will make a statement about the level of funding to individual grant-maintained schools in(a) the current financial year, (b) 1998–99 and (c) 1999–2000. [1283]

Mr. Byers

We are committed to establishing a funding system which does not discriminate unfairly between schools or pupils. For 1998–99 and beyond, we will consult widely about how best to achieve that. Funding for grant-maintained schools in 1997–98 is calculated under The Education (Grant-maintained and Grant-maintained Special Schools) (Finance) Regulations 1997.
