HC Deb 16 July 1965 vol 716 c138W
Mr. Hamling

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what steps he proposes to take to incorporate direct grant schools into the State system.

Mr. Crosland

Direct grant schools already form part of the State system, and in my recent circular on the reorganisation of secondary education I have asked their governors to co-operate with the local education authorities in devising ways in which the schools can be associated with local plans for comprehensive education.
