To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what provision exists for young people leaving moderate learning difficulty schools in Northern Ireland; what research (a) has been carried out to date and (b) is planned; and when it is intended to publish such research. [113866]

I would refer the hon. Gentleman to the reply I gave him on 29 April 2003, Official Report, column 334W, and can confirm that there has been no research commissioned by the Department of Education in this area other than that being undertaken by the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER), nor is any other research planned by the Department.
