HC Deb 15 November 1968 vol 773 c162W
Mr. Maurice Macmillan

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he has made a decision on the qualifications required for the teaching of mentally handicapped children.

Mr. Edward Short

No. This will be a matter for me to consider if the Government decide that responsibility for the education of mentally handicapped children is to be transferred to the education service and my Department.
