§ Mr. Barry Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what plans she has for recurrent education in the next decade; how much she proposes to spend on developing this sector in that period; and if she will make a statement.
§ Mr. St. John-Stevas
My right hon. Friend wishes to see a continued expansion of opportunities for recurrent education which have long been provided in the system of further and higher education, and in adult education. It is not practicable, because of the considerable range and diversity of activities in this field, to give an estimate of the expenditure involved.
