§ Mrs. Dunwoody
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he will give details of expenditure by his Department on studies of the educational and vocational experiences of 15 to 18-yearold children of the minority ethnic groups for this and subsequent years.
§ Dr. Boyson
The Department has agreed to pay a sum not exceeding £126,000 to the University of Keele over a period of three years from 1 April 1981, to conduct research on that specific topic. Other current research projects have some bearing on this subject, which also overlaps with the remit of the committee of inquiry into the education of children from ethnic minority groups.
