§ Mrs. Rumbold
Based on the returns of expenditure made to the Department of the Environment by local authorities the overall expenditure on the salaries of teachers in nursery, primary, secondary and special schools in England in the financial year 1986–87, the latest year for which actual figures are available, was £5,764 million. The figure includes the employers' contributions towards national insurance and superannuation but excludes Crombie and premature retirement compensation payments.
Information relating to Wales is the responsibility of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Wales.
