HC Deb 25 February 1975 vol 887 cc91-2W
Mr. George Rodgers

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will seek to establish a wider representation on the boards of managers and governors of independent schools catering for handicapped children in situations where the majority of pupils are nominated by local authorities.

Mr. Armstrong

The Warnock Committee will be looking at the whole question of the rôle which independent schools play in the education of handicapped children and my right hon. Friend would prefer to await its report before considering whether any action is desirable on this particular issue.
