HC Deb 22 December 1988 vol 144 c451W
Mr. Hume

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what representations he has received concerning the position of student and parent governors in further education college governance; and if he will make a statement.

Dr. Mawhinney

Some further education interests have written objecting to any parental representation on college governing bodies and seeking assurances about student representation. For the purposes of legislation I intend to follow closely the approach in the Education Reform Act.
