§ Mr. Alfred Morris
To ask the Secretary of State for Education if he will introduce legislation to extend the statutory entitlement to education for people with multiple disabilities to at least the age of 25 years; and if he will meet the campaign for people with multiple disabilities to discuss the need for statutory change.
§ Mr. Boswell
The Further Education Act 1992 requires the Further Education Funding Council and local education authorities to ensure that adequate further education provision is available for adults without age limit, including those with multiple disabilities. These are substantial statutory duties; the Government have no plans to extend them.
