asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will take steps to ensure that the children in the Swinton Fitzwilliam junior school in the Rotherham metropolitan borough council educational area, who are not being allowed to attend school due to the teachers' action in limiting the number of children per class, shall receive the education as required.

My right hon. and learned Friend is naturally concerned that all children should receive their education in the normal way. I understand that children are not at present being excluded from the Swinton Fitzwilliam school, and also that there are hopes of an early settlement to the dispute which is affecting a number of Rotherham schools.
