§ Mr. Hugh Jenkins
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what action she is taking to implement the recommendations of the Vernon Committee's Report on the Education of the Visually Handicapped; and if she will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Thatcher
My Department has invited comments on the report by 28th Total February, but one voluntary organisation with a substantial interest in this area has requested and is being allowed further time. Decisions on the committee's recommendations will be taken in the light of comments received.
