HC Deb 01 April 1969 vol 781 c80W
Mr. Small

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps he is taking regarding the future of the demonstration school attached to Jordanhill College of Education, Glasgow; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Ross

I have invited the governors of the college, who are responsible for the management of the school, which is selective and fee-paying, to review its future in the light of current educational developments including the proposal in the Education (Scotland) Bill for the abolition of fee-paying in education authority schools, and the movement towards comprehensive secondary education. The review is likely to take some time, and I have emphasised the need to have regard to the interests of existing pupils and staff.
