§ Mr. Kinnock
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if, pursuant to his answer to the hon. Member for Holborn and St. Pancras, South (Mr. Dobson) on 19 January, Official Report, c. 143, he has now seen the current report of Her Majesty's Inspectorate on the effect of local authority expenditure policies on maintained education; and if he will publish that report.
§ Sir Keith Joseph
I have not seen the report or any draft of it. It has not yet been completed and submitted to me. As I have already said—subsequently to my answer of 19 January and in answer to a question from my hon. Friend the Member for Woking (Mr. Onslow) on 3 February—[Vol. 17, c.131]— 1 have decided to publish the inspectorate's report when it is ready.295W
