HC Deb 17 November 1981 vol 13 cc87-8W
Mr. Ray Powell

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will consult local authorities to see whether cooperation between local authorities could be improved to assist in the purchase and supply of equipment for the education and use of handicapped children.

Mr. Michael Roberts

No. Opportunities for cooperation already exist through membership of the Welsh Joint Education Committee and the various purchasing consortia. I am not aware of any deficiency in these arrangements which would justify our intervention.
