HC Deb 10 March 1981 vol 1000 c267W
21. Mr. van Straubenzee

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what representations he has received as to the cost of school textbooks.

Mr. Mark Carlisle

I have received no representations specifically on this matter. The cost of books has in recent years increased broadly in line with costs generally, for which due allowance has been made in rate support grant settlements.
