HC Deb 12 July 1994 vol 246 c592W
24. Sir John Hannam

To ask the Secretary of State for Education what support he proposes to give to those schools which wish to develop a specialism in(a) music, (b) art, (c) languages and (d) other areas of the curriculum.

Mr. Robin Squire

The Government are committed to extending choice and diversity in secondary school provision and want to see more schools develop their own specialisms. We are currently examining in detail how new types of specialist schools can best be supported, within available resources. We expect to make an announcement in due course.
