HC Deb 11 November 1999 vol 337 c756W
Mr. Robertson

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what assistance is provided to former grant maintained schools which make staff redundant on changing to foundation school status. [98366]

Ms Estelle Morris

The costs of making teachers redundant must be met by the local education authority, except in so far as an authority has good reason to deduct some or all of the cost from the school's budget share.
