HC Deb 01 February 1982 vol 17 c33W
Mr. Greenway

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will use his powers under the Education Act 1944 to direct any local authority which maintains youth clubs run for homosexuals below the age of consent to cease to do so; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. William Shelton

My right hon. Friend is investigating reports that the ILEA is supporting work with groups of young homosexuals. He will reach a view on what action should be taken in the light of the facts established. I will write to my hon. Friend to convey the outcome.
