asked the Minister of Education when he proposes to give final approval to the amending scheme of the Lancaster County Council for divisional administration of education; if he will state how many local authorities in Lancashire have objected to the amending scheme and in how many cases he has met their objections; and if he will further consider the objection of Morecambe and Heysham to the proposed amalgamation of their Divisional Executive Committee with that of a neighbouring town.

I have approved this scheme. Objections to particular features of the scheme were made by 19 local authorities. In the case of seven of these I am making modifications in the scheme which substantially meet the objections. I gave very careful consideration to the Morecambe and Heysham Borough Council's objections before I decided not to modify the scheme in the sense they desired.
