HC Deb 15 May 1973 vol 856 c274W
27. Mr. Guy Barnett

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will set up a committee to inquire into the large proportion of children of West Indian origin attending schools for the educationally subnormal, and to make recommendations.

Mrs. Thatcher

No, Sir. I hope later this year to issue guidance to local education authorities on the educational assessment, placement and review of children of immigrants needing special help.
