§ Mr. Damian Green
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what assessment he has made of the administrative cost of the(a) introduction and (b) implementation of the leadership incentive grants; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Miliband
[holding answer 20 January 2003]Our current estimate of costs for administering the Leadership Incentive Grant process this financial year is approximately £400,000 to cover the cost of promoting collaborative working between schools.
For the next financial year we have provisionally set aside £1 million from the Targeted Improvement Grant to fund local activity in support of national funding of £175 million to schools.
