asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what recent communications she has had with the London borough of Bromley on the subject of the reorganisation of secondary education in the borough.

My Department wrote to the Bromley local education authority in 5th September 1978, to point out that the authority was in default of the statutory duty to give public notice of its proposals for the unreorganised county schools in its area and to submit further proposals for the voluntary aided grammar school. My right hon. Friend was pleased to see from the authority's reply of 4th October that it agreed to comply in respect of the county schools, but she could see no justification for agreeing to the request contained in that letter that the implementation of the proposals be delayed. The authority was informed of her decision by the Department's letter of 12th October.
