§ 35. Mr. Tudor Watkins
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he will now make a statement on a scheme for comprehensive education under his circular dealing with secondary education covering the Brecon, Crickhowell, Devynnog Hay and Talgarth districts at Penlan, Brecon.
§ Miss Bacon
The Breconshire Education Authority has submitted a scheme for the reorganisation of secondary education in this area by the establishment of a seven-form entry mixed 11–18 comprehensive school at Brecon and a three-form entry mixed 11–16 comprehensive school at Gwernyfed. My Department has asked the authority to publish statutory notices under Section 13 of Education Act, 1944. We shall not make a decision until this has been done and any objections which may be made have been considered.
