§ Mr. Ashdown
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science, further to his reply to the hon. Member for Yeovil on 9 March, Official Report, column 22, concerning a review by management consultants of Her Majesty's inspectors' procedures, if he will undertake to announce the findings of the review in due course; and if he will make a further statement.
§ Mrs. Rumbold
The review is of Her Majesty's inspectorate's internal procedures for writing, clearing, printing and distributing its inspection reports. It will be for Her Majesty's inspectorate to respond to the findings of the review as it sees fit. My right hon. Friend will announce in general terms what, if any, changes in procedure are introduced in due course.
