§ Mr. Galbraith
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what representations he has had from parents about school placements; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Michael Forsyth
I receive many representations from parents about school placing requests. Most are inquiries as to how to make an application or requests for advice on the appeals procedures. Since 1982, over 93,000 placing requests have been made to Scottish education authorities; almost 95 per cent. have been successful.
