§ 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. 
§ 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 333W figures illustrate the effect of allowing for local authority changes of function and taking account of new arrangements for funding music and student support.
