HC Deb 11 February 1999 vol 325 cc332-3W
32. Mr. Edward Davey

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if he will make a statement on the effect of the 1999–2000 revenue support grant on the provision of educational services in the Royal Borough of Kingston. [68904]

Ms Estelle Morris

Education services in Kingston should benefit from the underlying increase of £2.7 million or 5.2 per cent. in Kingston's education standard spending assessment for 1999–2000. These figures illustrate the effect of allowing for local authority changes of function and taking account of new arrangements for funding music and student support.
