HC Deb 09 February 1970 vol 795 cc259-60W
Dr. Gray

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he is aware of the Norfolk County Council's decision to continue the 11-plus examinations; and what consultations took place with the authority before this decision was reached.

Miss Bacon

I met representatives of the Norfolk local education authority in December and the Authority subsequently confirmed in writing their intention of achieving a comprehensive system of education for the county. The Department wrote to the Authority last week seeking clarification of their intentions in the light of recent statements.
