§ Mr. Fatchett
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science when he plans to publish further consultation papers in relation to the proposed Education Bill; what subjects will be covered; and what will be the periods for consultation.
§ Mrs. Rumbold
The Government have published consultation papers on the arrangements for collective worship and on our proposals for more open enrolment.82W
We are today publishing a consultation paper on financial delegation to schools, to be followed by others on charges for school activities, grant-maintained schools, the national curriculum, the Government's proposals to allow inner London boroughs to take on the responsibilities of local education authorities; and in due course probably certain other issues. Like those already published, these further papers will seek comments by the early autumn.
