§ Mr. Hardy
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what are the reasons for his statement that he refused to accept the views of the Advisory Centre for Education that local education authorities are not failing in their statutory duties under sections 8 and 61 of the Education Act 1944.
§ Mr. Mark Carlisle
I have nothing to add to the replies given on 4 March to questions fron the hon. Member for Wolverhampton, North-East (Mrs. Short) and, as respects section 61 of the Education Act 1944, from the hon. Member for Swindon (Mr. Stoddart).
