HC Deb 21 December 1988 vol 144 c345W
59. Mr. McFall

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland on what assessment of likely level of demand he based his decision to introduce the forthcoming Education Bill for Scotland.

Mr. Michael Forsyth

The proposed Education Bill will deal with a range of matters of varying importance and general concern. There is evidence of significant interest among parents in the concept of self-governing schools outwith local authority control.
