27. Mr. Renton

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what progress he is making in helping non-academic young people in secondary schools to be educated and trained for jobs.

My right hon. Friend recently announced his intention to mount in September 1983 a special programme of seven or eight development projects designed to help lower-attaining pupils. Over 60 English local education authorities have submitted proposals which are now being considered.
