Welsh schools granted extra help

WELSH education authorities are to get an extra pound;6 million this year so that school improvements are not knocked off course by the cost of meeting the teachers' pay settlement.

The extra funds will be allocated to the 22 authorities in Wales by the standard distribution formula for council revenue.
