§ 32 and 38. Mr. Kenneth Baker
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science (1) when she expects to come to a decision about the proposal to amalgamate the Rutherford and St. Marylebone grammar schools;
(2) how long her Department has been waiting for comments by the Inner London Education Authority to the objections that were made to its proposal to amalgamate the Rutherford and St. Marylebone grammar schools.
§ Mrs. Thatcher
The comments of the Inner London Education Authority were received on 18th February, the statutory period for objections to the proposals having expired on 18th August, 1971. I hope to reach my decision on the proposals shortly.
