§ Mr. Murray
asked the Minister of Health what developments there have been since February, 1966, for improving the educational facilities in sub-normal hospitals especially for children of the higher levels of intelligence.
§ Mr. K. Robinson
Local education authorities are responsible for providing educational facilities for children, including those in hospital, whose mental disability does not render them unsuitable for education at school. Hospital authorities are responsible for teaching and training other children in hospital. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Education and Science and I are always seeking to improve the facilities available for all these children and their needs are under constant review.
