§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he is satisfied with the progress being made in implementing the recommendations of the Warnock report.
§ Dr. Boyson
Since the publication of the report my Department has been encouraged to learn of numerous developments in special education in line with its recommendations. As my right hon. and learned Friend announced on 3 March, the Government have accepted the need for reform of the statutory framework and will shortly publish a White Paper outlining the proposals for legislation. This should provide a stimulus to further developments in this field.
