HC Deb 06 May 1965 vol 711 cc202-3W
35. Mr. Burden

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he is aware of the inadequate facilities available for the education of deaf children; and what steps he is taking to improve them.

Mr. Denis Howell

There are sufficient places in day and boarding special schools for deaf children. The supply of teachers of the deaf will be improved by the opening of a new course of training at London University in the autumn. My right hon. Friend is reviewing the need for further training places.
