On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Yesterday, the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families said in respect of school funding:

"Leicestershire is 34th out of 149 local authorities over the next three years."—[ Hansard, 13 November 2007; Vol. 467, c. 563.]

Actually, it is 149th—for every year. I believe that I am now allowed to say that it seems to me that the Secretary of State was misleading the people of Leicestershire. Can he be asked to come back to the Chamber and, having checked his facts, to rectify that statement?
