HC Deb 16 July 1999 vol 335 c362W
Mr. Jack

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what his definition is of those items which at the level of the local education authority constitute spending on administration. [91073]

Ms Estelle Morris

The core administrative expenditure of a local education authority is identified on line of the budget statement that all local education authorities are required to publish under section 52 of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998. When deciding what to include on this line, a local education authority may deduct from its local schools budget the planned expenditure in relation to the matters described in paragraphs 25(a) to (j) and (1) to (u), 27, 32 and 37 of Schedule 1 to the Financing of Maintained Schools Regulations 1999 (SI 1999 No 101) which were laid before Parliament on 24 January 1999.
