§ The Under-Secretary of State for Northern Ireland (Mr. Nicholas Scott)
I will, of course, do all I can to alleviate concern about the rationalisation of schools. Much of the concern is not well-founded.
Mr. J. Enoch Powell
In the flexible handling that the Minister has promised of the implications of the statistics for attendance at schools, particularly in rural areas, will he bear in mind those cases where the schools and their local communities are closely interdependent?
§ Rev. Ian Paisley
Can the hon. Gentleman tell us whether he has considered the Assembly's report on this subject and when will he be able to give a considered answer to what the Assembly agreed?
