HC Deb 19 January 1988 vol 125 c625W
44. Mr. Barry Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many school visits he has made over the last 12 months; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Dunn

During 1987 my right hon. Friend visited some 44 schools, including four independent schools, in 24 local education authorities. He also saw schools in the United States of America and France. My right hon. Friend is grateful to all those who welcomed him to their schools and thus enabled him to broaden his knowledge of their work and circumstances.
