§ Mr. Freeson
asked the Prime Minister if she will make a statement on the Central Policy Review Staff report "Education, Training and Industrial Performance"; and what action she intends to take to co-ordinate the response to this report and its proposals since it involves several Government Departments.
§ The Prime Minister
The Government regard this report as a helpful contribution to public debate and hope that its analysis and proposals will receive wide consideration. We shall not be issuing a detailed commentary, but Government Departments collectively will pursue the issues involved. We shall continue to bring forward policies to increase the responsiveness of education and training to the needs of the economy.
