asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science which authorities had not submitted plans for secondary reorganisation on non-selective lines by Tuesday 24th May; and whether she will make a statement.

Bexley and Kingston have submitted complete and definitive proposals in reply to the Department's letter of 24th November. Buckinghamshire, Essex and Sutton have sent complete but provisional replies containing proposals which are subject to ratification by education committees or councils or both, and I expect to receive a similar reply from Trafford before the end of the month. Redbridge has submitted incomplete proposals. Tameside has not submitted proposals. I am considering what action to take in each case, and my Department will be writing to several of these authorities shortly.
