HC Deb 22 March 1983 vol 39 cc379-80W
Mr. Best

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what continuing measures for adult education, particularly in the English language, are in effect or are proposed for Vietnamese refugees permanently settled in the United Kingdom.

Mr. William Shelton

It is for local education authorities, as part of the provision they make for the education of adults in their area, to determine how best to secure provision to meet the needs of resettled Vietnamese refugees. The Department is considering, in the light of recent reports, how best to assist the development of provision to meet those adults whose first language is not English.
