HC Deb 07 February 1980 vol 978 c290W
Mr. Beith

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science, in view of the plans of the Cumbria education authority to abolish the Youth Service; whether he will consider using default powers to ensure that this service is maintained.

Mr. Macfarlane

I understand that the authority intends to continue to provide the Youth Service, although at a reduced level.
