§ Mr. Silvester
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many of those local education authorities operating or planning to operate a transfer from junior to senior comprehensive schools at the age of 14 years intend to do so for all the children under their control; and where this is not the case, what proportion will be affected.
§ Mr. Gordon Walker
I have approved in principle 23 schemes which include such arrangements and I have five others under consideration. Of the 28, five affect the majority of pupils and 23 some smaller proportion.
