HC Deb 12 July 1979 vol 970 c255W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many times (a) since 1944 and (b) since 1964 orders have been made in Wales against local education authorities under section 99 of the Education Act 1944, based on a failure by the local education authority to have regard to the duties imposed upon it by section 76 of that Act.

Mr. Michael Roberts

Since November 1970, when education responsibilities were first transferred to the Welsh Office, one such order has been made.
