HC Deb 14 June 1988 vol 135 c103W
Mr. Allen

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science when he expects the next round of appointment of school governors to begin.

Mr. Dunn

The provisions of the Education (No. 2) Act 1986 concerning the reconstitution of school governing bodies come into effect for county and maintained special schools from 1 September 1988 and for voluntary schools from 1 September 1989. Within that framework, it is for local education authorities to determine the most appropriate timing for holding governor elections and making appointments to the reconstituted governing bodies.
