HC Deb 19 January 1981 vol 997 c71W
Mr. David Watkins

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will make provision for facilities for further education in hospital schools for the resident mentally handicapped.

Dr. Boyson

Responsibility for educational provision in hospitals rests with local education authorities. I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the hon. Member for Dearne Valley (Mr. Wainwright) by my hon. Friend on 13 January.
