HC Deb 14 December 1993 vol 234 c615W
18. Mr. Moss

To ask the Secretary of State for Education what steps he is taking to encourage more schools to develop the use of sixth forms.

Mr. Robin Squire

My right hon. Friend intends shortly to publish a framework of criteria to guide his future decisions on proposals for new sixth forms. The extension of choice and diversity will have a central place in this framework as well as need, effectiveness and cost.
