HC Deb 10 May 1973 vol 856 cc176-7W
Mr. Golding

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is the average time for which proposals for the reorganisation of secondary education have been considered within her Department.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

Because the scope and complexity of such proposals falling to be considered by my right hon. Friend vary, it could be misleading to give an average time for their consideration, and this information is not readily available.
