To ask the Secretary of State for Education, pursuant to the Answer of 3 September 2019 to Question 281772 on Teachers: Pay Settlements, from which Departmental budget the £105 million transferred into the Teachers' Pay Grant in the current financial year was drawn.
The Department has been able to fund the additional investment of £105 million into the existing Teachers’ Pay Grant through reprioritising funding from within the Department’s existing 2019-20 budgets. This includes additional headroom funding that has become available as a result of adjustments to forecasts, where expected spend is now lower than anticipated when budgets were set. Where the Department has identified available resources, it has prioritised it to the front line.
