HC Deb 08 July 1997 vol 297 c437W
Mr. McNulty

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if he will review provision for special educational needs; and if he will make a statement. [6876]

Ms Estelle Morris

We shall publish in September a Green Paper setting out for consultation proposals to take forward our policies to raise standards for children with special educational needs. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State has set up a new National Advisory Group on SEN to help in the preparation of the Green Paper, and to oversee the subsequent process of consultation, and the resulting action programme for this Parliament. The Group will meet for the first time on 17 July.
