asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will arrange for the Cowan Report on the reorganisation of secondary education and the working party report on alternative transfer arrangements to be debated by the Northern Ireland Committee.
If right hon. and hon. Members wish it, the Government will be happy to assist in arranging for a debate to take place in the Northern Ireland Committee, although this may not now be possible before the announcement that my noble Friend hopes to make on these matters in the near future. Right hon. and hon. Members may prefer to wait for the statement before holding the meeting of the Committee.
