§ Mr. Teddy Taylor
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science if, in the light of the substantial number of responses to his consultative paper on educational reform, he will send each correspondent, or otherwise publicise, a circular indicating the areas of the Education Bill where the detailed plans were influenced by the nature of the responses received by him; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Rumbold
There have been more than 17,000 responses to our consultation papers. It would not be appropriate to reply to each of these individually. The Government will, however, draw attention during Parliament's consideration of the Education Reform Bill to the many detailed aspects which have been influenced by the consultation process.
