HC Deb 27 June 1989 vol 155 c411W
Mr. Tredinnick

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many schools have now opted for grant-maintained status; and if he will make a statement.

Mrs. Rumbold

My right hon. Friend has so far approved proposals for grant-maintained status from 19 schools. A further 24 have published proposals, or voted to do so, and he will determine these on their merits in due course.
