HC Deb 03 July 1979 vol 969 c523W
37. Mr. Stan Thorne

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what plans he has to increase educational provision for the 16 to 19 years age group in the early 1980s.

Mr. Macfarlane

The level of resources needed for the education of this age group will be considered in the light of the review of the relationship between schools, further education and training which the Government are undertaking and against the Government's policies for public expenditure generally.
