HC Deb 15 March 2001 vol 364 cc725-6W
25. Mr. Andrew George

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what progress has been made in reviewing the formulae for the funding of local education authorities. [152574]

Ms Estelle Morris

We issued a Green Paper on Local Authority Funding on 19 September 2000 and consultation ended on 8 December. An analysis of consultation responses was published on 5 March on the DETR website at www.local.detr.gov.uk/greenpap/ analysis/index.htm. Copies of the analysis have also been placed in the Library. We will publish a White Paper on Local Government Finance later in the year. We will be working on a new formula for funding local education authorities over the coming months, with the aim of moving towards a new system in 2002–03.
