HC Deb 03 March 1966 vol 725 cc1465-6
21. Mr. Hamling

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science when he will introduce a Bill to repeal the education review sections of the London Government Act; and whether he is aware that the London Teachers' Association, together with other teachers' associations, is concerned about the delay since last November.

Mr. Prentice

I sympathise with the views of the London Teachers' Association, but I cannot say when the legislation will be introduced. It will be done as soon as the legislative programme permits.

Mr. Hamling

Is my hon. Friend aware that we hope after the election to bring in one or two recruits to help him?

Mr. Prentice

Yes, Sir. I think that the statement made by my right hon. Friend in November should reassure London teachers and others concerned in this matter, and further reassurance will be given to them on 31st March.
