HC Deb 18 December 1979 vol 976 c165W
45. Mr. Alfred Morris

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what steps he is taking to improve educational opportunities for disabled children; and what would be the cost of such improvements.

Dr. Boyson

Statutory responsibility for the provision of educational facilities for disabled children rests with local education authorities. It is for each authority to consider, in the light of its own priorities and the resources available, what improvements are possible at any time.
