HC Deb 30 January 1992 vol 202 c656W
13. Mr. Harry Greenway

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many children in the Province have been statemented; to what extent the subsequent arrangements made for their education have fulfilled the requirements in the statements; and if he will make a statement.

Dr. Mawhinney

At Janaury 1991, a total of 5,997 children in Northern Ireland had statements of special educational needs. I am not aware of any general dissatisfaction about the way in which the requirements of statements are being fulfilled.
