§ 37. Mr. Thomas Cox
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what consultation took place with the Inner London Education Authority and teachers' representatives before she agreed to the financial cuts in the Inner London Education Authority Minor School Works Programme for the coming financial year.
§ Mr. van Straubenzee
Under arrangements agreed with the local authority associations and the Inner London Education Authority which were announced in March, 1970, local authorities are not consulted before minor works allocations are made. Consultation with teachers on the way in which allocations are used is a matter for local authorities.
