HC Deb 22 November 1983 vol 49 c98W
8. Mr. Loyden

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what consideration he has given to educational provision related to changes in the birth rate into the 1990's.

Sir Keith Joseph

The Government's education policy is informed by the most careful consideration of population movements. For 1988 and future years, however, projections are increasingly dependent on inherently difficult judgments about the likely level of the future birthrate.
