Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown calls on the Government to address distribution of education funding

25th July 2019

Following the statement by the new Prime Minister, Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown calls on the Government to look at the distribution of funding among education authorities.

May I warmly congratulate my right hon. Friend on lifting the mood of the nation? Will he look at the record amount of funds going into education, to address not only the funding going to further education but the distribution among the highest-funded and lowest-funded education authorities?

That is of course what we are doing. That is the nature of the pledge and the undertaking that we are making with the £4.6 billion that we have announced. The objective, as I think Members will know by now, is to lift per capita per pupil funding to a minimum everywhere of £4,000 for primary school pupils and £5,000 for secondary school pupils.
