HC Deb 10 April 1973 vol 854 c241W
Mr. Cyril Smith

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will publish a list of the authorities where parents serve on school governing bodies as of right, and also of establishments that organise courses of education for school governors and managers on their duties and rôles.

  • Dorset.
  • Northumberland.
  • Oxfordshire.
  • Rutland.
  • Suffolk West.
  • Westmorland.
  • Yorkshire North Riding.
  • Inner London Education Authority.

  • Rochdale.
  • Sheffield.
  • Stockport.
  • Stoke-on-Trent.
  • York.
