HC Deb 03 November 1994 vol 248 c1393W
Mr. Tony Banks

To ask the Secretary of State for Education (1) how many additional governors she has appointed; and at which schools;

(2) how many additional governors she has appointed to grant-maintained schools; if she will list the schools; and what has been the total cost to date of such appointments.

Mr. Robin Squire

By virtue of section 67 of the Education Act 1993, which re-enacts section 53(6) of the Education Reform Act 1988, the Secretary of State has the power in certain circumstances to appoint additional governors to grant-maintained schools only. Four such appointments have been made, all to Stratford grant-maintained school. There has been no cost to the Department.
