HC Deb 28 July 1980 vol 989 cc524-5W
Mrs. Renee Short

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what proposals he has to undertake a survey of West Indian pupils; if he will give details of these; what representations he has had; and if he will make a statement.

Dr. Boyson

The Department's assessment of performance unit is currently considering proposals for a survey of educational performance of West Indian pupils in consultation with representatives of the main interested organisation. My right hon. and learned Friend has not yet decided whether or not such a survey should be mounted.
