HC Deb 11 June 1997 vol 295 cc497-8W
Mr. Roy Beggs

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what plans she has for additional funding for education in Northern Ireland. [1523]

Mr. Worthington

The Government has begun a Comprehensive Spending Review to ensure that, within the published plans for 1997–98 and 1998–99, expenditure is aligned with the Government's priorities, including education. We have already reallocated £4 million to address the problems facing schools in 1997–98. Decisions on the Comprehensive Spending Review will help to inform allocations in future years.
