HC Deb 01 March 1962 vol 654 c1510
10. Mr. Scott-Hopkins

asked the Minister of Education whether he has received the report from the British Council of Rehabilitation on the needs of handicapped school leavers; and if he will make a statement.

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Education (Mr. Kenneth Thompson)

My right hon. Friend hopes to receive this report by the end of the year.

Mr. Scott-Hopkins

Will my hon. Friend take steps to have the report published? Will he also bear in mind how important it is that this section of our school children should receive the maximum support they can get, because at the moment they are not getting quite as good a deal as the rest of the school leavers?

Mr. Thompson

I agree with the latter remarks of my hon. Friend, and I will consider his proposal about publication of the report.
