HC Deb 27 July 1979 vol 971 c521W
Mr. Kinnock

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he proposes to allow the Rampton committee on multi-ethnic education to continue with its work; and, if so, when he expects the committee to publish its report.

Dr. Boyson

I refer the hon. Member to the answer given yesterday by my right hon. and learned Friend to a question by my hon. Friend the Member for Preston, North (Mr. Atkins). The committee's terms of reference require it to give early and particular attention to the educational needs and attainments of pupils of West Indian origin and to make interim recommendations as soon as possible.
