HC Deb 29 November 1985 vol 87 cc682-3W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what steps he intends to take to monitor the extent to which the guidance notes to local education authorities issued by his Department have been complied with.

Sir Keith Joseph

There is no intention to monitor the extent to which local education authorities comply with the guidance notes. These notes are only a guide to the Education (Mandatory Awards) Regulations, and have no statutory authority.
