HC Deb 18 May 1982 vol 24 cc91-2W
26. Mr. Dykes

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will examine ways in which computer selection processing of pupil names for different secondary schools in local authority education areas can be improved to permit individual pupil and family requirements.

Dr. Boyson

Within the framework of the Education Act 1980, local education authorities are free to make their own arrangements for admissions to schools in their areas. My right hon. Friend has no particular role to play in this.
