Sir J. Eden
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether she will meet members of the Dorset County Education Committee together with hon. Members to discuss proposals for the reorganisation of secondary education in Dorset.
Miss Margaret Jackson
My right hon. Friend required the Dorset LEA under section 2 of the 1976 Act to submit further proposals by 31st July. The authority has failed to do so and is therefore now in breach of the duty laid upon it. I have told the authority that my right hon. Friend expects to receive proposals without further delay and that no useful purpose would be served in a meeting. I am, however, ready to meet hon. Members to discuss these matters.
