HC Deb 21 November 1968 vol 773 c311W
Mr. Carter-Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will take steps to co-ordinate and improve the educational and medical services for children who are suffering from spina bifida; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Denis Howell

I have asked local education authorities, in preparing their building programmes for special schools, to have regard to the need for additional places for the larger numbers of such children expected to survive through infancy, and am considering what further advice I should give.
