HC Deb 03 November 1966 vol 735 c137W
18. Mr. Whitaker

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he will take steps to recommend that representatives of parents are elected to the governing bodies of State schools.

Mr. Denis Howell

I believe that such matters are usually best left to local initiative, but my right hon. Friend will consider whether it would be appropriate for him to give any fresh guidance when he has studied the findings of current research into school management and government.
