§ 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.
