To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the difference in the costs of the supplies and services required to run (a) standard grade courses and (b) the O-grade courses they supersede.

No information is available centrally on the costs of specific items. In 1988–89 £6 million will be available to local authorities generally in respect of current expenditure on non-teaching costs associated with standard grade, and there is provision of £3 million for capital expenditure. In that year there will also be current expenditure of £870,000 by central Government on support for the new standard grade courses.
