HC Deb 19 November 1985 vol 87 cc124-5W
55. Mr. Favell

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he has any plans to introduce continental hours for schools.

Mr. Dunn

Local education authorities already have, and in some cases exercise, a considerable degree of flexibility in their arrangements, while complying, as they must, with the relevant provisions of the Education (Schools and Further Education) Regulations 1981.
