HC Deb 17 October 1995 vol 264 cc227-8W
12. Mr. Lidington

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if she will make a statement about the age of transfer between schools in Buckinghamshire. [36002]

Mr. Paice

It is for Buckinghamshire local education authority in respect of its schools and for the governing bodies of individual voluntary and grant-maintained schools to publish proposals if they wish to change their age range. My right hon. Friend will consider any such proposals on their merits. My officials stand ready to advise on the technical aspects.
