asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science Whether she is satisfied with the current reports from local education authorities on their state of preparedness for the raising of the school leaving age in 1972; and if she will make a statement.

I am satisfied in general terms that preparations nationally are well in hand and I hope to make a fuller statement to the House later today.
