§ Mr. Harry Howarth
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he is satisfied with the proposals submitted to him by the Northamptonshire County Council Education Committee for the reorganisation of secondary education on a comprehensive basis; and if he will make a statement.
§ Miss Bacon
I have approved in principle the authority's proposals. Implementation has begun in two areas but, in others, will have to wait the development of schools of viable size.
