§ Q5. Mr. Andrew F. Bennett
asked the Prime Minister if she is satisfied with the co-ordination between the Secretaries of State for Education and Science and Health and Social Services, on removing the right of school leavers who do not get jobs to draw social security, and the effect of this regulation in encouraging pupils to leave school at Easter, rather than remain at school until the summer leaving date.
§ The Prime Minister
Yes, I do not believe that the delay in entitlement will significantly influence school leavers' intentions.
