§ Mr. Nigel Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what plans he has to amend the Pupil Registration Regulations; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Ms Estelle Morris
My right hon. Friend has no immediate plans to amend the regulations. Advice on registration issues is however included in our new guidance on "Social Inclusion: Pupil Support", which was issued for consultation on 22 January 1999. We shall of course consider the case for any amendments in the context of responses to that document.
