§ Mr. Alfred Morris
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is the cost in a full financial year of his Department's acceptance of aspects of the Warnock committee's proposals on the education of handicapped children.
§ Mr. Mark Carlisle
The main group of proposals addressed to the Government concern the new statutory framework for assessing special educational needs based on individual requirements. The Government's acceptance of these proposals, which I announced on 3 March, is not expected to lead to any significant increase in public expenditure.—[Vol. 980, c. 42–43.]
