§ 42. Mr. Christopher Price
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether she will make a further statement on provision for adult literacy beyond March 1978.
§ Mr. Oakes
I refer my hon. Friend to the answer given by my right hon. Friend to my hon. Friend the Member for Bedwellty (Mr. Kinnock) on 5th December last. I would add only that the head designate of the new adult literacy unit is already in post, that the unit's management committee held a preliminary meeting last month, and that bids have been invited from providers in both the maintained and voluntary sectors, seeking support from the unit's available funds.
