asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what efforts are being made to ensure that all new secondary and higher or further educational buildings are accessible to disabled pupils and students; and if he considers current progress satisfactory.

Earlier this year my Department published design guidance on access for the physically handicapped to educational buildings. Many of the recommendations are being put into effect in new buildings and I am generally satisfied with the progress which is being made withtin the limits of the resources available to local education authorities.
