HL Deb 24 June 1998 vol 591 c22WA
Baroness Blatch

asked Her Majesty's Government:

If and when a proposal under the School Standards and Framework Bill to close, enlarge or merge a foundation school is initiated by the local education authority, whether it is the case that the decision would be made by the organisation committee on the basis of unanimity and where unanimity cannot be secured by the adjudicator. [HL2349]

Baroness Blackstone

If objections are received to a proposal, then the school organisation committee will decide the proposals if the votes cast are unanimous and if they are not, the adjudicator will make the decision.
