§ Mr. D. J. Williams
asked the Minister of Education how many education authorities have submitted to her Department administrative schemes as required by the Education Act of 1944; how many of these schemes have been approved and how many rejected; and what are the reasons for the delay in approving the scheme submitted by the Glamorgan Education Authority.864W
§ Miss Wilkinson
Schemes of divisional administration have been submitted to my Department by 29 local education authorities. Of these schemes 22 have so far been approved. None has been rejected. In the case of the Glamorgan scheme, it has been necessary to consult the local education authority, first about numerous objections which were received at publication stage and secondly on proposed modifications in the scheme. The minor points which are still under discussion are likely to be settled at an early date.
