HC Deb 25 June 1981 vol 7 c158W
Mr. Hill

asked the Secretary of State for Industry whether, in view of the fact that many comprehensive secondary schools already possess a microprocessor, he will extend the "Micros in Schools" scheme to enable any school, regardless of whether it already has a microprocessor, to take advantage of the scheme.

Mr. Kenneth Baker

Our "Micros in Schools" scheme gives initial priority to secondary schools that do not possess a microcomputer. It has always been our intention to extend the scheme to other schools as soon as we are well on the way towards meeting this first objective. I hope that we shall be able to do this by the new year.
