§ 34. Mr. Newton

§ Mrs. Shirley Williams
My right hon. Friend and I invited comments last October from over 30 organisations on various aspects of the Taylor Report. Their replies, and over 70 other letters received, are now under consideration. There has been support from many of those who have commented to us for the principle of wider representation on governing bodies, in particular of parents and teachers, but differing opinions have been expressed on many of the committee's detailed recommendations, including those concerning the role and powers of governing bodies.
