§ Mr. Mikardo
asked the Minister of Education if he will give a list of the county councils whose education development plans have not yet been approved by his Department.
§ Mr. Tomlinson
I have approved the plans submitted by the local education authorities for Isle of Wight, Rutland, Yorkshire (East Riding), Yorkshire (North Riding), Kent and Anglesey. In the case of every other county, except those mentioned below, I have sent the local education authority my comments on the plan, and in the large majority of instances am still awaiting their reply. I am still examining the plans submitted by the local education authorities for Berkshire, Lincolnshire (Lindsey), Oxfordshire, Staffordshire, Surrey, Warwickshire and Monmouthshire. Complete plans for Cumberland, Durham, Carmarthenshire and Glamorgan have not yet been submitted.
