§ Mr. Arnold
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science, pursuant to the answer to the hon. Member for Hazel Grove on 25 November 1982, Official Report, c. 67, when he expects to make a statement on the recommendations of the review of the legal basis of further education.
§ Mr. William Shelton
It is taking a little longer than expected to reach conclusions on this matter. My right hon. Friend hopes that his statement will not be long delayed, but he cannot yet give a date.
