Birmingham's schools are hoarding almost £17 million in unused cash despite pleading poverty, figures from the city council have revealed, the Birmingham Post reports (page 5).

It says Kingsbury in Erdington secondary has accumulated almost £400,000 while Wilkes Green Junior in Handsworth has just over £200,000 sitting int he bank. A further three secondary schools are reported to have topped the £200,000 mark in surplus money.

The paper says Birmingham education chiefs fear the city council may use the surplus cash as an excuse not to increase spending on education in budgets for 1995-96.
