§ Baroness Blatch
My Lords, with the leave of the House, I should like to make a personal Statement. In my reply yesterday to the noble Baroness, Lady Lockwood, referring to the annual report of Her Majesty's Inspector of Schools, I said:It may be appropriate for me to point out that the quote in the Question asked by the noble Baroness comes from paragraph 13. It does not refer to the youth and community service at all".—[Official Report, 20/2/90; col. 145.]That was wrong. The quotation used by the noble Baroness came from paragraph 15 and did refer to the youth and adult education service. I was mistaken. I am sorry for this and I should like to apologise unreservedly both to the House and to the noble Baroness.
