§ 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.
