HC Deb 14 November 1984 vol 67 c238W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is the Government's policy towards proposals for statutory student representation on school governing bodies; and whether any studies on this issue are currently, or have been, undertaken by his Department.

Mr. Dunn

The Government's proposals for the future composition of school governing bodies in the Green Paper "Parental Influence at School" (Cmnd. 9242) did not include provision for pupil governors. The Department has undertaken no particular study of this issue, nor does it expect to do so.
