HC Deb 18 June 1979 vol 968 cc366-7W
Mr. Foster

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will publish in the Official Report the amounts spent on adult literacy by each education authority in England and Wales for each year from 1974.

Dr. Boyson

The information is not collected by the Department or other agencies concerned with adult literacy work and to obtain it directly from local education authorities would impose an unreasonable burden upon them.
