HC Deb 10 May 1962 vol 659 cc66-7W
Sir B. Janner

asked the Minister of Education which recommendations of the Albemarle Report have now been implemented; what are his proposals with regard to the other recommendations; and if he will make a statement.

Sir D. Eccles

On those recommendations which required action by the Government I made a full statement in reply to the hon. Member for Sunderland, North (Mr. Willey) on 14th February.

The statement made by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer on 8th May in relation to expenditure on sport and physical recreation will enable progress to be made with implementing recommendations 16 and 35 of the Albemarle Report.

I continue to receive encouraging evidence of the extent to which the local education authorities and voluntary bodies are giving general effect to those recommendations in the Albemarle Report which directly concern them.
