HC Deb 01 July 1968 vol 767 c172W
80. Mr. Whitaker

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what representations he has received against his Department's closing Mr. Neill's Summerhill School; and whether he will give an assurance that it will not be closed.

Miss Bacon

I have received one representation from a member of the public who was under the impression that the Department was considering the closure of Summerhill School. This is not the case. Like all independent schools it is, of course, subject to inspection and the possibility that action may be taken under the various provisions in Part III of the Education Act, 1944.
