§ Mr. George Rodgers
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will now make a statement on the progress of consultations with local education authorities, teachers' organisations and public transport authorities about the transport of children to school.
§ Mr. Mulley
As I said on 14th October in reply to Questions by my hon. Friend the Member for Goole (Dr. Marshall) and the hon. Member for Burton (Mr. Lawrence)—[Vol. 897, c. 1110–13.]—proposals for new transport arrangements are with the interested organisations for comment, but full replies cannot be expected for some considerable time. I have nothing at present to add to that statement.
