HC Deb 29 October 1985 vol 84 c449W
Mr. Andrew F. Bennett

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will make a statement on existing and future provision of education for patients in mental hospitals.

Mr. Whitney

It is for the health and local authorities concerned to arrange for adults in long-stay mental hospitals to receive appropriate education and training. The provision of facilities for the education of all children is a matter for my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Education and Science.
