asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is the per capita spending on books, excluding stationery, by each education authority for 1974–75; what percentage increase or decrease this was on 1973–74; and what percentage increase or decrease is planned for 1975–76.

The information for 1974–75 is not yet available. Valid comparisons with 1973–74 will be possible only for those few authorities whose boundaries were not changed in April 1974. My Department has no forward estimates of authorities' expenditure on books.
