HC Deb 15 May 1968 vol 764 cc1220-1
46. Mr. Edward M. Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what representations he has received regarding the operation of a single entrance date each year for primary schoolchildren in Glasgow; and what reply he has sent.

Mr. Millan

A number of representations have been received from parents and others. My right hon. Friend has now required Glasgow education authority to fix two commencing dates for the 1968–69 session and to submit proposals for this purpose. He has also indicated that he will be glad to have further discussions with the authority on any proposals it may have to put to him.

Mr. Taylor

Is the Under-Secretary aware that many parents who wrote to him directly or through their Members of Parliament, will be extremely grateful for the action taken in this matter?
