§ Mrs. Renée Short
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will give the figures for each local education authority of the amounts spent on non-teaching costs in 1979–80, showing the percentages spent on building maintenance, central administration, milk and meals, caretaking and cleaning, clerical support, transport, books and equipment.
§ Mr. Mark Carlisle
My Department does not prepare figures of expenditure for each local education authority. Analyses of authorities estimates and expenditure are contained in the education Statistics published annually by the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy copies of which are available in the Library. The latest available figures of expenditure are for the financial year 1978–79.
