HC Deb 08 July 1974 vol 876 cc339-40W
Mr. Bates

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will introduce legislation to require local authorities to provide paracurricular activity outside school hours.

Mr. Armstrong

This is unnecessary. The existing powers of local authorities and governors of schools in this respect are sufficiently extensive.

Commission, the chairman of the governors and the headmistress. It is hoped that a decision on the points at issue will be reached in the very near future.
