HC Deb 26 February 1998 vol 307 c334W
Mr. Donaldson

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many female non-teaching primary school principals there are in(a) the South Eastern Education and Library Board area and (b) the Borough of Lisburn. [29945]

Mr. Worthington

Since the introduction of the LMS funding arrangements, information in the form requested is not available. Under the Local Management of Schools arrangements, it is entirely a matter for the Board of Governors of each school how their annual delegated budget is spent on running the school. This includes the number of teachers to be employed and whether or not the school employs a non-teaching rather than a teaching principal.
