§ Mr. Don Foster
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if he will list by local authority the planned expenditure per pupil at 1998–99 prices from aggregate school budgets in(a) maintained primary schools and (b) maintained secondary schools in 1999–2000. 
§ Ms Estelle Morris
Information for the financial year 1999–2000 is still being collected and checked by the Department. We will publish authoritative data showing the plans of the authorities, including the amounts to be held back centrally, later this month. I will write to the hon. Member when the figures he requests are available, and a copy of my letter will be placed in the Library.
