HC Deb 23 October 1979 vol 972 cc125-6W
25. Mr. Flannery

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science which authorities have now elected to change their plans from a comprehensive system to a selective system.

Dr. Boyson

Under the provisions of the 1979 Education Act my right hon. and learned Friend has revoked, at the authorities' request, approvals given for reorganisation proposals for Bolton, Trafford, Wirral and Cumbria in respect of Cockermouth. Cumbria has also decided not to proceed with its reorganisation proposals for Workington/Whitehaven.
