HC Deb 27 May 1977 vol 932 c718W
Mr. Hugh Jenkins

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is her policy on drama schools; and if she will make a statement.

Mr. Oakes

Most of these schools are independent institutions and, therefore, outside my right hon. Friend's direct concern. But we are conscious of the valuable service they perform, and the Department is in touch with the recently established National Council for Drama Training.
