HC Deb 29 February 1980 vol 979 c745W
Mr. Beith

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science in how many cases he has agreed to the reintroduction of selection at a school which has already become comprehensive.

Dr. Boyson

None. My right hon. and learned Friend has received only one such proposal—that in respect of Sutton girls school, Sutton Coldfield. The period of public notice in respect of this proposal did not expire until 19 February and a decision has yet to be made.
