HC Deb 24 May 1960 vol 624 cc39-40W
Lady Gammans

asked the Minister of Education if he will give an assurance that, before agreeing to the discontinuance of a voluntary school against the wishes of its denominational authority, he will institute an inquiry.

Sir D. Eccles

No. Public inquiries are not always necessary to discern the facts or the views of those concerned. Every proposal of this kind is examined with great care and the fullest consideration is given by me to any objections.
