HC Deb 20 July 1982 vol 28 c125W
24. Mr. Marlow

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he will take steps increasingly to privatise the provision of education.

Sir Keith Joseph

I am keen to find ways in which parental influence and involvement in education might be taken yet further than the point reached by the Education Act 1980, but I am not yet clear what part greater privatisation might play in this.
