HC Deb 19 January 1988 vol 125 cc625-6W
48. Mr. Amess

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what resources his Department devotes to monitoring the incidence of dyslexia.

Mr. Dunn

The Department does not monitor the incidence of particular learning difficulties. It is for local education authorities to assess the needs of children in their areas who are experiencing learning difficulties and to ensure that provision is available for their educational needs.
