§ Mr. Batiste
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he has any plans to extend the technical and vocational education initiative.
§ Mr. Peter Morrison
I have been asked to reply because the technical and vocational education initiative is administered by the Manpower Services Commission.
Under the extension plans we announced last November all those local education authorities (education authorities in Scotland) not currently participating in the initiative were invited to submit a proposal with a view to starting a project this year or next.
