§ Mr. Barry Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science (1) if she will publish the names of those colleges of education scheduled for closure as a result of the published plans to restrict output in colleges of education: and if she will make a statement;
(2) which Welsh colleges of education are scheduled for closure under the Government's White Paper on Education; and if she will make a statement.
§ Mr. St. John-Stevas
No decisions on closures have been taken. The future rôle of individual colleges of education will need to be considered in relation to provision for higher education as a whole in each area, and my right hon. Friend will be consulting the maintaining 385W authorities and other providing bodies in due course.
