HC Deb 02 December 1980 vol 995 c130W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what steps he is proposing to take to implement his recent statement that further education should be expanded.

Mr. Mark Carlisle

The Government's expenditure plans allow for the continued growth of home student numbers in non-advanced further education in line with expected demand. However, it is for local authorities to determine the pattern of their expenditure between and within services.
