§ Mr. Marks
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she has considered the recommendations in the report, "Work Out of School", by Dr. Emrys Davies, which was sponsored by the Department of Health and Social Security, a copy of which is in her possession; and if she will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Thatcher
I have seen the publication "Work Out of School". The employment of school children is a matter for my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Social Services and is the subject of frequent consultation between our Departments.
