§ Mr. Alfred Morris
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what consideration she has given to the resolution approved by the Co-operative Movement's Education Department Annual Conference on comprehensive and nursery education, a copy of which has been sent to her; and if she will make a statement of her policy towards the action called for.
§ Mrs. Thatcher
The Government's policy on the organisation of secondary education is set out in Circular 10/70. I shall continue to consider on their merits any proposals which may be submitted to me under Section 13 of the Education Act, 1944 (as amended) to give effect to reorganisation schemes. On nursery education, I have nothing to add at present to what I said in the debate on 12th May.—[Vol. 836, c. 1756–69.]
