§ Mr. Flynn
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will list in theOfficial Report all (i) in-service training and (ii) first offer courses on environmental protection and management currently offered by British universities, polytechnics or colleges of higher and further education, of which his Department is currently aware; and whether he has any plans to extend support for environmental education.
§ Mr. Alan Howarth
The Department does not at present maintain a list of the environmental courses currently available in higher and further education. The priority to be given to such courses is for individual institutions to determine, in the light of demand and within the resources available to them. The Government are, however, proposing to establish an expert committee to make recommendations on the future development of environmental provision within further and higher education.
