HC Deb 14 January 1988 vol 125 cc375-6W
Ms. Armstrong

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what representations he has received seeking the extension, by law, of the national curriculum to those children who are supported by public funds through the assisted places scheme; and if he will make a statement.

Mrs. Rumbold

Only a very small proportion of the responses from individuals and organisations on the consultation document made points about pupils on the assisted places scheme.
