HC Deb 18 January 1983 vol 35 c90W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he is satisfied that the forms used by his Department to compile statistics on handicapped pupils are adequate to identify fully secondary handicap among such pupils; and if he will review this matter with representatives of the Wales Council for the Disabled.

Mr. Michael Roberts

The present forms contain little information about secondary handicaps but the whole question of the collection of statistics on handicapped children is being reviewed with the coming into force of the remaining provisions of the Education Act 1981 on 1 April 1983.
