Autumn Statement: Chancellor to tackle school funding in England

Inequality in school funding across England is expected to be addressed in George Osborne's Autumn Statement on Wednesday.

The Chancellor is understood to be planning a consultation on the details, possibly in early 2016, with changes to be implemented in 2017-18.

School budgets face a likely fall of 8% per pupil due to rising costs during the next five years.

Ben Ando reports.
