Referring back to a comment made by the hon. Members for Mid-Dorset and North Poole and for Bognor Regis and Littlehampton, will the Minister clarify how the clause will affect pregnant teenagers? Clearly, being pregnant is neither an illness nor a disability. Those girls are not being excluded either. Will he reassure me on that matter—in relation to this clause or elsewhere in the legislation—because where the young woman’s desire is to continue in the secondary school that she has been attending, it might be problematic to provide suitable and appropriate education.
