HC Deb 27 March 1998 vol 309 c322W
Mrs. Lait

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what plans he has to legislate to reverse the Greenwich judgment. [34120]

Mr. Byers

We have no plans to legislate to reverse the Greenwich Judgment. The judgment opened up greater opportunities for parents by ensuring that the exercise of choice should not be artificially constrained by the fact of residing on one or other side of a LEA boundary. Under the new admission framework, set out in the School Standards and Framework Bill, we envisage admission authorities working closely with those in neighbouring LEA areas in the interest of all parents.
