24. Miss Joan Lestor

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will make a statement on his intentions regarding the charitable status of public schools.

Mr. Denzil Davies

My right hon. Friend is considering with his colleagues the charitable position of public schools in the light of the views expressed both by the Sub-Committee of the Expenditure Committee and in the recent report of the independent committee of inquiry under Lord Goodman.
