§ 20. Mr. J. E. B. Hill
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science when he expects to receive the Second Report of the Public Schools Commission.
§ Mr. Edward Short
In view of the importance of this investigation and its 565 relevance to secondary reorganisation, I have asked Professor Donnison to let me have the report as soon as possible; it seems likely that it will be available in the autumn of 1969.
§ Mr. Short
I quite agree that it needs time to do the job properly. The Commission had started to visit schools and already been to Bristol. It has gathered a great deal of evidence. In view of the tremendous importance of this second stage of their work and its relevance to secondary reorganisation, I have asked the Commission to do its work as quickly as it can. The Chairman assures me that he can probably finish the work by the late summer of next year.
