HC Deb 20 April 1982 vol 22 c77W
19. Mr. Straw

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many representations he has received from parents alleging failure by local education authorities to meet their statutory obligations under the Education Acts; and if he will make a statement.

Sir Keith Joseph

I receive very many letters from parents and others on a wide variety of matters. Where a breach of statutory duties is alleged, the complaint is investigated and I consider the matter in accordance with the Education Acts and in the light of all the relevant factors.
