§ Mr. John Grant
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will take steps to ensure greater recognition of the needs of handicapped young people when planning education or Manpower Services Commission budgets.
§ Mr. William Shelton
The determination of local education budgets is a matter for the local authorities. An increasing number of local authorities are making provision for handicapped young people. Manpower Services Commission budgets are a matter for that body.
