HC Deb 09 November 1977 vol 938 c153W
Mr. Fitt

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what action he is taking to extend the provisions of Section 10 of the Education Act 1976 to Northern Ireland ; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Carter:

Section 10 of the Education Act 1976 has not yet been brought into operation in England and Wales. It is not intended to make similar provision in regard to Northern Ireland until the outcome of further research and discussion in England and Wales is known and the report of the Warnock Committee has been received and considered.
