§ Mr. Beith
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether, in considering applications to change comprehensive schools into grammar schools, such as that made in respect of Sutton girls' school, Sutton Cold field, he will have regard to the need to ensure continuity, minimise disruption and respect the views of parents and teachers in the area.
§ Dr. Boyson
My right hon. and learned Friend takes these and other factors into account when considering such a proposal.
