HC Deb 22 October 1973 vol 861 c409W
Miss Quennell

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many schools still lack suitable provision for disabled pupils.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

Figures about this are not collected; facilities to meet all individual needs would vary widely. The information available however suggests that local education authorities and others providing new or remodelled school buildings are showing a proper regard for Section 8 of the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970 in matters of sanitary facilities, access and car parking.
