62. Sir D. Walker-Smith

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science when she expects to receive the report of the joint DES/Local Authority Associations' Working Party; and whether she will take it into urgent consideration, on receipt, with a view to assisting with problems of school transport in rural areas,

Mr. St. John-Stevas

I understand that it will be some time before a report is ready. When it is my right hon. Friend will consider its findings very carefully, including those that bear on school transport in rural areas.
