HC Deb 01 July 1963 vol 680 cc19-20W
Sir J. Gilmour

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when the report of the working party on the linkage of secondary and further education will be available.

Mr. Noble

There will be published tomorrow the report of the working party appointed by my predecessor in 1961 to consider means of improving the arrangements for co-ordination between secondary and further education. The working party's report"From School to Further Education" is the outcome of an exhaustive study not only of the relationship between secondary and further education but also of the kinds of course which should be available and the ways in which they can best be organised. The working party makes many important practical recommendations which I shall be considering further in the light of the comments of education authorities and other interested bodies, and I am commending the report to their attention.
