asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will make a statement on his Departmeent's participation in the International Year of the Child; what work was carried out by his Department in connection with the International Year of the Child; and what further follow-up studies are being planned for 1980.

My Department has so far contributed £25,000 towards the expenses of the United Kingdom Association for the International Year of the Child and has also made direct contributions to a number of projects linked to the IYC. These include the preparation of a directory of cultural and artistic opportunities for young persons and a research project on the education of schoolchildren for the role of parenthood. The need for follow-up studies will be considered in the light of a review of the Year's activities.
