§ 28. Mr. Arnold Shaw
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what progress has been made by the Redbridge borough council towards the full implementation of comprehensive secondary education in its area as required by the Education Act 1976.
§ Miss Margaret Jackson:
Following a direction under section 99 of the Education 110W Act 1944, the authority submitted proposals with an implementation date of 1986. My right hon. Friend considered that this date was unsatisfactory and required the authority to submit further proposals for implementation in 1981. The authority has now proposed 1984. My right hon. Friend has again required further proposals to be submitted for the ending of selection in 1981.
