HC Deb 11 December 1979 vol 975 c554W
Mr. Maxton

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will make arrangements for an appropriate charge to be levied on private schools using careers officers employed by local education authorities in England and Wales.

Mr. Jim Lester

No. I am advised that the Employment and Training Act 1973 does not preclude local education authorities from charging for the provision of a careers service, but I am not aware that any authorities do so.
