§ Mr. William Shelton
Many of the review's conclusions were for consideration by local education authorities and others concerned with the provision of education for 16 to 19-year-olds. My right hon. Friend expects shortly to announce his decisions on proposals for a new pre-vocational qualification for 17-year-olds and is reviewing matters arising from the legal status of further education. A manual for costing 16 to 19 provision, commissioned at the review group's suggestion, is to be published shortly.
