HC Deb 21 July 1960 vol 627 c55W
57. Miss Bacon

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if, during the course of his forthcoming review of the situation of approved schools, he will consider amending the law with regard to approved schools in order to give the Secretary of State powers of appointment, dismissal and approval of managers, and to abolish local committees of approved schools so as to ensure responsibility of committees to local authorities.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I am reviewing the whole position, but as at present advised I attach importance to the voluntary principle.
