Inner-London Supplements

Volume 455: debated on Monday 15 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills if he will review the process whereby outer London boroughs have to pay inner London supplements to their teaching employees without compensation from central Government as received by inner London boroughs. (114949)

The London pay areas are long established and there are no current plans to examine the case for changing them. Because Dedicated Schools Grant distributions are based on spend in the 2005/06, variations in expenditure between each local authority will be taken into account in the levels of funding they receive.
