HC Deb 12 November 1968 vol 773 cc60-1W
53. Mr. Ron Lewis

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will add to the bodies prescribed for the purposes of Section 115 of the Local Government (Allowances to Members) (Prescribed Bodies) Regulations, 1967, managing and governing bodies of schools appointed under the Education Acts.

Mr. Skeffington

No. The existing arrangement is that my right hon. Friend, in consultation with his right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Education and Science, considers on its merits any application for prescription of an individual body of this kind. We do not think that general prescription is justified at the present time.
