Local government secretary Stephen Byers has given some hope to a delegation of local government members and education directors who have lobbied for a fairer system of education funding.

The F40 group represents 40 councils with the 'poorest funded education departments in England and Wales'.

Representatives met with Mr Byers last week to persuade him to review the allocation of funding to give education departments in the group a better deal.

Dr Davies said the meeting with Mr Byers was positive: 'He clearly wants to get the SSA formula right, but couldn't say how much money would be available.'
