§ Mr. van Straubenzee
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science, why, in rejecting the plans of the County Borough of Reading for secondary reorganisation, he sent a copy of his confidential letter doing so to the leader of the minority group on that council.
§ Miss Bacon
The official letter conveying my decision was not sent to the local education authority under confidential cover. Subsequently, I sent a54W copy to the leader of the minority group because he had written to me asking what progress had been made.
