HC Deb 09 November 1987 vol 122 cc29-30W
Mr. Galbraith

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will give the number of submissions he has had on his proposals for school hoards and the number opposed to the ceiling powers.

Mr. Michael Forsyth

We have received some 6,500 submissions by the deadline date of 3 November. Many take the form of detailed comments on the proposals and it would not be possible to classify them in the form suggested.
