Geoffrey Clifton-Brown calls for fairer funding for Gloucestershire schools

4th July 2017

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown condemns the fact that Gloucestershire pupils received almost half that of the highest-spending London authority and asks when the fair funding formula will be announced.

It must be wrong, historically, that children in Gloucestershire receive almost half what the highest-spending London authority receives. Will the Minister therefore tell us, so that I can reassure my local parents and governors, when we are likely to see the fair funding formula announced?

My hon. Friend is absolutely right. We are moving to the national fair funding formula in 2018-19. The consultation, which closed on 22 March, had over 25,000 responses, and we will be responding to it very shortly.
