HC Deb 17 January 1968 vol 756 c630W
Mr. Leslie Huckfield

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what proposals he has for reducing the duplication of small classes in various subjects at area and regional colleges of further education and technical colleges.

Mr. Gordon Walker:

I have arranged for all courses requiring my approval to be reviewed during the current session in the light of the recommendations in the report on "The Size of Classes and Approval of Further Education Courses" submitted to my predecessor last year by the National Advisory Council on Education for Industry and Commerce. I have asked local education authorities to take similar action in respect of other courses.
