§ Mr. Onslow
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what has delayed his decision on the section 12 notices submitted to him by Surrey county council relating to the Queen Elizabeth II and Shearwater schools in Woking; and if he will now make a statement.
§ Dr. Boyson
The authority's proposals for these schools raise important and complex issues which have required careful and detailed consideration. My right hon. Friend is aware that his decision is needed urgently and expects to announce it shortly.
