Lords amendment: No. 37, in page 37, line 42, leave out "four" and insert "two".

I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said amendment.

The amendment will reduce from four months to two months the period between the submission of a complaint to the Education Ministers and the time when the complainant could take proceedings in the county court. The Government accept that it is reasonable to expect the majority of complaints to have been dealt with within the shorter time. If this does not prove possible in a number of cases, the Education Ministers will continue to consider the complaints after the two months period has elapsed, and to issue a direction if this is appropriate.

Question put and agreed to.
