§ Mr. Meacher
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will list all the changes that have been made since 1979 in his Department in the presentation of statistical information; and what further changes are now planned.
§ Mrs. Rumbold
Regarding changes to the presentation of statistics by my Department, I refer the hon. Member 159W to my reply to the hon. Member for Dagenham (Mr. Gould) on 5 December, at columns 839–40. Further changes may result from Government policy needs, quinquennial reviews of regular statistics or for statistical and technological reasons.
