HC Deb 17 February 1997 vol 290 c402W
Sir Irvine Patnick

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment which metropolitan cities have banned school uniforms from local education authority schools; when bans were originally enforced; and if she will make a statement. [16020]

Mrs. Gillan

Information about school uniform policies is not collected centrally. School governing bodies are free to decide for themselves whether their schools should have a uniform.
