HC Deb 19 June 1995 vol 262 c24W
Mrs. Golding

To ask the Secretary of State for Education what percentage of London education authorities provide educational support services for children with autism; and if she will make a statement. [29086]

Mr. Forth

All LEAs are required to arrange any special educational provision specified in a statement of SEN for a child for whom they have responsibility. They have the power to provide support services for children with special educational needs in their or any other area. How these services are organised is a matter to be determined by each LEA.
