HC Deb 06 March 1973 vol 852 cc82-3W
75. Mr. Hugh Jenkins

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether she is now ready to report on her consideration of the recommendations of the Vernon Committee's Report on the Education of the Visually Handicapped; and if she will make a statement.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

Not yet. Comments on the report are still awaited from nine bodies, of which two have asked for an extension until the end of March. Consultation is also taking place with other Government Departments on recommendations with which they are concerned.
