HC Deb 28 October 1986 vol 103 c95W
22. Mr. Greenway

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science when he plans to bring into effect the provisions of the Education Bill relating to sex education.

Mrs. Rumbold

Subject to royal assent, the requirement to offer any sex education within a moral context supportive of family life will come into force two months after enactment. Control over the content and organisation of sex education will pass to the governing bodies of county, controlled and maintained special schools when these are reconstituted.
