To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what decision he has reached now that he has received Calderdale's bid for capital allocation for 1988–89, concerning the £1·2 million needed to implement the Commission for Racial Equality's proposals.
I refer the hon. Member to the reply my right hon. Friend gave earlier today to my hon. Friend the Member for Skipton and Ripon (Mr. Curry).Calderdale's allocation for 1988–89 is 92 per cent. higher than its original allocation for 1987–88.Alllocations in respect of prescribed expenditure are unhypothecated and it is up to Calderdale local education authority to decide how to use the resources available.
