HC Deb 23 June 1992 vol 210 c125W
Sir Michael Neubert

To ask the Secretary of State for Education what percentage of children of school age receive single-sex education in(a) Romford, (b) the London borough of Havering and (c) England and Wales generally; and what assessment he has made of the extent to which this provides adequate choice for parents in the state sector.

Mr. Forth

Information for schools in Romford is not available centrally. Information on schools in Wales is the responsibility of my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State for Wales. In January 1991, the percentages of children of compulsory school age receiving education in maintained single sex schools in Havering local education authority and England as a whole are 9.2 and 4.7 respectively. It is for each local education authority to determine the demand for single sex education in its area.
