HC Deb 06 June 1978 vol 951 c22W
Dr. Hampson

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science why regulations implementing Section 10 of the Education Act 1976 have not yet been issued.

Mrs. Shirley Williams

The implementation of Section 10 is discussed in great detail in the recent report of the Warnock Committee. It has always been my intention, I believe with wide support within the education service, to await the outcome of consultations on the report before deciding what action to take on these provisions. As I foreshadowed on 24th May in reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Stoke-on-Trent, South (Mr. Ashley), preparations for consultations with interested bodies are now in hand.
