HC Deb 07 March 1957 vol 566 cc86-7W
44. Mr. Moss

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Education how many local education authorities have protested against the centralisation of certain courses in schools of art; and what has been his reply.

Sir E. Boyle

Ninety local education authorities were affected by the review of full-time art courses. Thirty-nine of these accepted the proposals made to them in time for them to take effect last autumn. My noble Friend is still discussing with the remainder of the authorities concerned some or all of the proposals which affect them.
