§ Mr. Skinner
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science (1) how many adult education courses were available nationally in 1979, 1980 and 1981;
(2) how many adult education courses are available in the county of Derbyshire.
§ Mr. William Shelton
This information is not normally collected. Data about the number of courses at adult education centres maintained by LEAs in 1979–80 and 1981–82 are however being collected by the Department in a special survey. I will write to the hon. Member when they are available. These will not cover such courses as are provided in universities and further education colleges.
