§ Mr. Steen
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will publish in the Official Report a table showing the completed research projects financed wholly and partly by the Schools Council during the last five years, indicating the total cost of each of and stating whether the recommendations contained in each have been implemented or not; and, if implemented, by whom and when.
§ Mr. Prentice
I understand from the Schools Council that 71 research and development projects were completed during the period April 1970 to March 1975 at a cost of £3,035,820. I am sending the hon. Member details. The results of these projects have been, or will be, made available through publications to local education authorities and teachers at large. It is a matter for their decision, of which no central record is kept. whether or not to use these results in the classroom. or to adapt them.
