I recommend the following Clarinet's as good instruments to buy for learning with. They are not prohibitively expensive, yet will see you through to Grade 4+.

Buffet B12 - £350 from Perfect Pitch

The first notes and the feel of an instrument are very important for a beginner. They help to develop acoustic capabilities as well as enhancing future artistic development.

The B12 clarinet is made from ABS resin with an appearance and sound similar to that of genuine grenadilla wood. This model is lightweight, strong and easy to clean – perfect for even very young players. The instrument, with plastic body rings, straight keywork and without the traditional bell ring gives a very attractive and modern design. The body is stained and buffed to give the appearance of wood. The nickel silver keywork is cold forged and induction soldered, providing greater stability, precision and quality.

All models in the student range are equipped with an adjustable thumb rest for ease of locating the most comfortable thumb position and a neck strap ring to reduce weight on hands when using the neck strap.

Windcraft WCL-100 Series 1 - £169 from Perfect Pitch

The Windcraft Series 1 Clarinet is a newly designed free blowing Clarinet with good construction, intonation and solid sound, ideal for beginners. Comes with a Windcraft student mouthpiece. Supplied in a lightweight fabric style case, complete with Gonzalez reeds, high quality pull through, cork grease and case tag for name and address.
