§ Mr. Harold Walker
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is the amount of money to be allocated to the expansion of non-advanced further education to which reference is made in paragraph 33 of Cmnd. 7746; over what period it will be allocated; and by what means it will be made available, whether through rate support grant or otherwise, 432W to ensure its expenditure on the declared objective.
§ Mr. Mark Carlisle
The Government's plans for 1980–81 allow for provision for home students in non-advanced further education to increase by some £20 million compared with the estimated level in 1978–79. This is reflected in the rate support grant settlement for local authorities announced on 16 November.
