Grammar Schools

Volume 461: debated on Monday 4 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills which organisation was used by his Department to assess the appropriateness of the electoral arrangements for deciding on the continuance of grammar schools; and how much that organisation was paid for its services. (138625)

[holding answer 22 May 2007]: Pauline Hughes Consultancy was commissioned to do this work. The remit was wider than assessing the appropriateness of the electoral arrangements and it is not possible to separate out the costs on that specific aspect of the work. The total cost of the work was £2,732.40.
