Schools: Finance

Volume 504: debated on Monday 18 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families pursuant to the answer of 7 December 2009, Official Report, column 148W, on schools: finance, which local authorities are classed as (a) predominantly rural and (b) predominantly urban; and if he will make a statement. (307286)

The classifications are shown in the following table. The classification of local authorities into those which are predominately urban and predominately rural is based upon the Rural and Urban Area Classification (2004) sponsored by the Countryside Agency (CA), the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), Office for National Statistics (ONS), the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM) and the Welsh Assembly Government. Predominantly rural local authorities are classified as those which consist of more than 50 per cent. rural output areas.
