HC Deb 20 December 1945 vol 417 c1511
8. Mr. King

asked the Minister of Education whether she will ensure that education development plans which are submitted to her by local education authorities, will, at the same time, be made avail able to the public on request, so as to en sure public discussion before the Minister's sanction is given or withheld.

Miss Wilkinson

Section 11 of the Education Act, 1944, requires that publicity shall be given to the development plan after the Minister's approval, but the local education authority are required during its preparation to consult the managers or governors of all schools affected by the plan and this is likely to ensure considerable publicity at that stage.
