asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is the number of deaf and partially deaf children in Northamptonshire at present in residential schools, partial hearing units, nursery classes, normal schools with the aid of hearing aids, normal schools where the child is only subject to periodic checks, under hospital treatment with future checks required, and referred to hospital in the latest 12 months but needing no further action.

There are at present 35 deaf and eight partially hearing children in residential schools and 39 children in units for the partially hearing. The remaining information asked for is not available in the Department but could probably be obtained from the local education authority.
