HC Deb 23 July 1985 vol 83 c510W
40. Mr. Jack Thompson

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is his policy towards the development of community education.

Mr. Dunn

It is for local education authorities to decide on the pattern of educational provision locally, including the extent to which educational buildings might be used for community purposes. My right hon. Friend does, however, encourage local authorities to promote the shared use of school premises so far as resources permit.
