Mr. Nicholas Winterton
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what bodies and organisations she intends to consult before deciding whether to introduce legislation to implement sections of the Oakes Report.
In response to administrative memorandum 3/78 we have received nearly 70 submissions commenting on the report. I cannot yet say how many or which of these will require further consultations; as my right hon. Friend indicated in her reply to the hon. Member's Question on 17th July 1978—[Vol. 954, c. 10]—no decisions have been taken on the need for meetings.
