asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will list for each local educational authority in England the composition of the education committee indicating the number of elected members and the number of co-opted members and in each local authority whether the co-opted members have full, partial or no voting rights.

The list is as follows. The education committees of all authorities in England except one have co-opted members; the voting and other rights of the latter are the same as those possessed by elected members.
