HC Deb 21 October 1971 vol 823 c175W
Mrs. Doris Fisher

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what consideration she has given to the principle of a four-term year instead of the three-term year in all schools; and if she will make a statement.

Mr. van Straubenzee

Local education authorities are free to organise the school year in maintained schools as they think fit and no approaches have been made to my right hon. Friend about this.
