To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills if it is her policy to introduce a new system of financing schools in 2002–03. 294W
§ Mr. Timms
The Government are currently undertaking a review of local government funding. As part of that wider review we are working with local government and schools partners on the proposals in the September 2000 Green Paper "Modernising Local Government Finance" for a new LEA and school funding system. The Government have not yet decided on the timing or the final shape of any changes to the local government grant distribution system.
