§ Miss Quennell
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many schools still lack suitable provision for disabled pupils.
§ Mr. St. John-Stevas
Figures about this are not collected; facilities to meet all individual needs would vary widely. The information available however suggests that local education authorities and others providing new or remodelled school buildings are showing a proper regard for Section 8 of the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970 in matters of sanitary facilities, access and car parking.
