HC Deb 28 October 1980 vol 991 cc227-8W
Mr. Hannam

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what provision his Department has made to ensure physically handicapped schoolchildren are given the opportunity to study computer science.

Dr. Boyson

My right hon. and learned Friend is anxious that opportunities for study in this field should be widely available. However, responsibility for the curriculum in individual schools and for the provision of staff and equipment is a matter for the individual local education authorities and the governors of the schools.
