HC Deb 13 February 1973 vol 850 cc289-90W
35. Mr. Cordle

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will introduce legislation to set up a register of all language schools in the United Kingdom.

Mrs. Thatcher

I assume that my hon. Friend is thinking of independent establishments which provide courses in the English language for students from over- seas. I share the concern which some people have expressed about the standards of some of these establishments but there would be difficulties about the sort of legislation my hon. Friend has in mind.
