§ Mr. John Carlisle
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether there is any intention to abandon the adult literacy scheme or to make any reduction in its performance.
§ Dr. Boyson
I refer my hon. Friend to the answer given by my right hon. and learned Friend to my hon. Friend the Member for Loughborough (Mr. Dorrell) on 17 December 1979.—[Vol. 976, c.15.] It is, however, for local education authorities to determine, in the light of the unit's work and of local needs, priorities and resources, what continued level of provision for adult literacy work can be made in their areas.
