HC Deb 22 November 1983 vol 49 c107W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many objections have been received to the proposals to reorganise Liverpool's secondary schools; and how many of the schools listed for closure have supported the proposals and how many have objected.

Mr. Dunn

The Act requires objections to be submitted to the local education authority in the two months following the publication of the proposals on 4 November 1983. The authority then has between 4 January 1984 and 4 February 1984 to submit these objections to my right hon. Friend with its observations. I am sending the hon. Member a copy of circular 2/80 which explains the statutory procedures.
