To ask the Secretary of State for Education

The information requested is set out in the table.

The early intervention grant (EIG) was an unhypothecated grant formed in 2011-12 from several ring-fenced intervention grants. In May 2012, it was announced that from 2013-14 the EIG would become part of the Business Rate Retention Scheme. At the same time, it was decided that funding for early learning for two-year-olds, which had previously formed part of the EIG, would be included in the dedicated schools grant. Department for Education also retained responsibility for distributing the early intervention grant topslice.

As the table shows, overall funding for early intervention through these three funding streams is increasing from £2.2 billion in 2011-12 to £2.5 billion in 2014-15. The table excludes the per capita changes which the Department does not collect.
