§ Mr. Norris
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will list those local education authorities which, in the most recent year for which information is available(a) had introduced full budgetary delegation to (i) all primary schools and (ii) all secondary schools and (b) had introduced school funding (i) fully in accordance with their published formula, (ii) partly in accordance with the formula and partly in accordance with historical principles and (iii) only in accordance with historical principles.
§ Mr. Fallon
The following table lists those local education authorities whose primary or secondary schools have full delegated management as of 1 April 1991.
With regard to formula funding, the vast majority of LEAs have taken advantage of the transitional arrangements which allow for the change from historic to pure formula funding to take place gradually in the period up to 1 April 1994.
The detailed information on each LEA is not immediately available. I shall write to my hon. Friend.
