§ Mr. Brotherton
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science when she proposes to make her observations on the Kent County Council feasibility study of the education voucher scheme.
§ Miss Margaret Jackson
The Kent local education authority has not yet informed us of the conclusions of its feasibility study. In general, however, my right hon. Friend does not believe that the introduction of a voucher system would improve the quality or the efficiency of our children's education.
