HC Deb 19 July 1982 vol 28 c68W
Mr. Greenway

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many local education authorities have reached agreement with relevant diocesan authorities to establish new instruments of government for their aided and controlled schools.

Dr. Boyson

Instruments of government for voluntary schools are made by order of the Secretary of State and the initiative for them rests with the individual school authorities rather than the maintaining LEAs. On behalf of all their schools, a number of diocesan authorities have taken a co-ordinating role in preliminary consultations with LEAs.
