HC Deb 15 December 1949 vol 470 c315W
117. Mr. Corlett

asked the Minister of Education whether he now proposes to exercise his powers under Section 68 of the Education Act, 1944, and to direct the North Riding local education authority to fill the vacant places at certain grammar schools on the grounds that they have acted unreasonably in this matter.

Mr. Tomlinson

No, for I do not regard the authority's action as unreasonable.
