Peter Bottomley: To ask the hon. Member for Roxburgh and Berwickshire, representing the House of Commons Commission, what arrangements are in place for monitoring the work of the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards. 
Mr. Kirkwood: Since the appointment of the first Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards in 1995 it has been recognised that the formal appraisal arrangements for senior Officers of the House are not appropriate for the special circumstances of the post. Both Commissioners have discussed their work from time to time with the Speaker and the Clerk of the House. In addition, Standing Order No. 149 (1)(b) provides that the Committee on Standards and Privileges shall oversee the work of the Commissioner.

1. The figures reflect Education SSA (primary and secondary blocks respectively) plus all school related revenue grants in DfES's DEL relevant to pupils aged 510 (primary) and 1115 (secondary).
2. The primary and secondary grant figures include notional allocations for those grants in support of more than one sector.
3. Pupil numbers underlying the £ per pupil figures are those underlying the SSA calculations (primary and secondary sub- blocks respectively).
4. Real terms figures are calculated using GDP deflators published by the Treasury 20 December 2001.
5. 200102 figures are provisional as decisions on some funding allocations have yet to be finalised. The figures are thus liable to be revised later on in the year.
