To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will meet the officers of the Buddy Bear committee to discuss requirements for the summer school to be held in Dungannon.

[holding answer 26 June 1990]: The Buddy Bear Trust has already provided me with details of its proposed summer school but, given the Government's overall policy on the introduction of conductive education into this country and the continuing need for evaluation of the technique, I have concluded that it would not be appropriate to provide financial assistance for this from public funds.I understand that the trust is also developing detailed proposals for a permanent institute for conductive education in Northern Ireland and I will carefully consider those proposals when they are made available.
