HC Deb 12 December 1978 vol 960 cc106-7W
20. Mr. Whitehead

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what recent representations she has received concerning educational maintenance for secondary school children over 16 years of age.

Mr. Oakes:

My right hon. Friend has received very many representations on this subject—over 70 in writing during the five weeks from 1st November, all but four of which were in favour of improved arrangements.
