§ Mr. Hannam
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will publish a report on the progress of the three-year study of existing integration schemes begun in September 1978, stating the interim findings of that study and how it relates to his consideration of submissions on the Warnock report and the implementation of section 10 of the Education Act 1976.
§ Dr. Boyson
A three-year study of current provision for handicapped children in ordinary schools, sponsored by my Department, was started in September 1977 by the National Foundation for Educational Research. It is not intended to publish a report until after the study has been completed later this year. I shall consider at that time whether to make any statement on the study.
