Pupils: Per Capita Costs

Volume 475: debated on Thursday 1 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families (1) what the average expenditure from the public purse was per pupil on (a) primary, (b) secondary and (c) pre-school education in each parliamentary constituency in the North West in each year since 1997; (202732)

(2) what the average public expenditure per pupil on education was in each parliamentary constituency in the North West in each year since 1997.

The available information is contained within the tables. There are two breaks in the time series because of changes to data collection: 1999-2000 saw a change in data source when the data collection moved from the RO1 form collected by the CLG (formally ODPM) to the section 52 form from the DCSF (formally DFES). 2002-03 saw a further break in the time series following the introduction of Consistent Financial Reporting (CFR) to schools and the associated restructuring of the outturn tables. The change in sources is shown by the blank columns. Local government reorganisation (LGR) took place during the mid to late 1990s and those LAs that did not exist either pre or post LGR are shaded out for those years.
