§ Mr. Tierney
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether she will make a statement about changes in the Chairmanship of the Schools Council and the Further Education Curriculum Review and Development Unit.

The present Chairman of the Schools Council, Sir Alex Smith, will relinquish the post on 20th April, and I have appointed Mr. John Tomlinson, the Director of Education for Cheshire, to succeed him from that date. At the same time, the Rev. Canon George Tolley will succeed Mr. Tomlinson as Chairman of the Board of Management of the Further Education Curriculum Review and Development Unit.
