HC Deb 25 June 2002 vol 387 c832W
Ian Lucas

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what extra funding has been allocated within the SSA to carry out education policy initiatives during this financial year, broken down by local authority. [63601]

Mr. Miliband

The Education Standard Spending Assessment (SSA) is unhypothecated. It is therefore up to local education authorities to decide how much funding they should allocate for education policy initiatives: there is no specific allocation within Education SSA for 2002–03 at local level.
