HC Deb 19 January 1967 vol 739 c639
30. Mr. Wingfield Digby

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Sciénce how many schools have been visited by the Public Schools Commission; and to what extent reports on public schools by inspectors of his Department have been submitted to it.

Mr. Crosland

I do not expect to be kept in touch with the Commission's day-to-day work. Reports on public schools by H.M. Inspectors have been made available to the Commission only by permission of their governing bodies.

Mr. Digby

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware of the thoroughness and excellence of these reports? In view of the financial demands of the Plowden Commission, has the right hon. Gentleman made up his mind about how much money is to be available to implement any recommendation that the Commission may make?

Mr. Crosland

No. Sir.
