HC Deb 10 December 1982 vol 33 c626W
Mr. John Grant

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will make a statement on the report "Special School Leavers", sent to him by the Greater London Association for the Disabled. and in particular on its request for implementation of the Warnock committee recommendation that top priority should be given to the provision of further education places for handicapped 16 to 19-year-olds.

Mr. William Shelton

My right hon. Friend welcomes the report. In its White Paper "Special Needs in Education" (Cmnd. 7996), the Government indicated the need for local and regional co-operation in further education for those with special needs.
