HC Deb 17 October 1995 vol 264 c231W
23. Mr. Amess

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what plans he has to compel local authorities to finance the cost of transport of children to grammar schools. [36013]

Mr. Robin Squire

My right hon. Friend has no plans to change the current statutory position whereby local education authorities have a duty to provide free transport to the nearest suitable school for pupils who live beyond the designated walking distances.
