HC Deb 14 March 1978 vol 946 c130W
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.
