HC Deb 21 May 1985 vol 79 c388W
45. Mr. Tony Lloyd

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science when he was last in communication with the borough of Trafford concerning school reorganisation.

Mr. Dunn

Following my right hon. Friend's decision to reject proposals from the Salford Roman Catholic diocesan trustees, for the reorganisation of Roman Catholic secondary schools in north Trafford on 30 October 1984, the Department wrote to both the Salford Roman Catholic diocese and the borough of Trafford to explain that my right hon. Friend's decision was in no way intended to endorse the status quo. The letter also offered a meeting with officials of the Department if both parties considered that would be helpful, and this was held on 17 December 1984.
