§ Mr. Edward Short
I am not ready to make a statement until current consultations have been completed. I made clear to the hon. Member on 6th February last that all concerned should first have an opportunity to express views on desirable changes in the law.—[Vol. 777, c. 559–60.]
Mr. Gresham Cooke
If the Minister intends to introduce a national scheme for comprehensive education in his forthcoming Bill, will he consider the needs of special areas such as Richmond-upon-Thames where there is neither space nor finance to build comprehensive schools and the present secondary schools will need extension?
§ Mr. J. E. B. Hill
Will the right hon. Gentleman confirm that there will have to be two Bills, one comparatively short covering his immediate objectives, and later the more comprehensive Bill for which he has been collecting information and views?
