1. Mr. Iremonger

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many immigrant children are at present receiving education in Redbridge Borough Council schools, indicating the number of children in each school concerned.

Mrs. Thatcher

These statistics are compiled from returns supplied by local education authorities on the understanding that information about identifiable individual schools will not be published.
