Mr. Sumberg

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what representations he has received from schools in the north-west in response to his proposal that state schools should be permitted to opt out of local authority control.

All individual schools which have approached the Department have done so on the basis that their interest will be treated in confidence.
