§ Mr. Spearing
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment, pursuant to her answer of 19 October concerning amendments to the regulations to school buildings, which of the bodies she lists favoured removal of any regulatory standard; which provisions she now proposes to remove and when; and by what means she announced her own views. 
§ Mrs. Gillan
The Department issued a consultation letter on 14 August 1995. Responses were requested by 18 October 1995 and are now being analysed. We will, of course, give careful consideration to respondents' views before making any decisions on the final shape of the regulations.
