asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many secondary school places each local education authority had in 1979 and at the latest available date; and if he is satisfied with progress in reducing the numbers.

We are reviewing progress in the light of those returns but shall only be able to complete our analysis when a sufficient number have been received.
