HC Deb 15 June 1972 vol 838 c358W
34. Mr. O'Halloran

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will seek powers to enable her to meet the fees of persons attending local authority lip-reading classes; and if she will make a statement.

Mrs. Thatcher

Local education authorities already have discretionary power to waive or reduce fees for persons attending their classes, or to assist with fees at classes elsewhere.
