to his reply to the hon. Member for Wolverhampton, North-East on 17 March, if he will give details of the information he has received from the Centre for Information and Advice on Educational Disadvantage showing that there is use by local authorities and schools of its services; and if he will list the local authorities and schools concerned.

My right hon. and learned Friend received a detailed submission from the centre's governors in January and he has also received copies of various recent publications by the centre. These contain information about the local authorities and schools which are cooperating with the work being undertaken by the centre's field officers, about other authorities visited by centre staff, and about inquiries which authorities and teachers made to the centre last year. A list of the local authorities and schools concerned is not, however, available.
