HC Deb 20 March 1997 vol 292 c832W
19. Mr. Cox

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the present education budget for the Prison Service in England and Wales; and if he will make a statement. [19800]

There is no central education budget: decisions on the size of education budgets are taken by individual governors. Governors' budgets for education this year totalled £35,297,815.
