HC Deb 19 January 1967 vol 739 c640
32. Mr. Hamling

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what further steps he is taking to implement the Albermarle Report; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Denis Howell

The main recommendations have been implemented. In particular, the provisional target of 1,300 full-time leaders by 1966 has been reached. The development of the Youth Service to meet changing needs is a continuing process. In this the recently reconstituted Youth Service Development Council will review the whole service and, through subcommittees examine specific problems in depth. Two of these are under way, dealing with immigrants and the Youth Service, and the relationship of the Youth Service to formal education. The third subject will be the relationship of the Youth Service to the community as a whole.

Mr. Hamling

In the light of that helpful reply, will my hon. Friend also take another look at the unhelpful replies previously given to our questions about the Inverliever project?

Mr. Howell

We were asked about that and in consequence of the promise I made to the House I am looking at it further.
