HC Deb 10 June 1971 vol 818 c351W
24. Mr. Tinn

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether she has approved proposals from the Teesside local education authority for the establishment of a special unit for autistic children in co-operation with the local society for autistic children.

Mrs. Thatcher

My specific approval is not required except in relation to the plans for the building. Sketch plans were approved in April. I am glad to welcome this example of co-operation between a local education authority and a voluntary body.
