§ Mr. Greenway
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will make a statement on the future of denominational schools.
§ Dr. Boyson
The Government fully recognise the vital part that voluntary schools play in the dual system of county and voluntary schools established by the 1944 Education Act and reinforced in subsequent legislation. The Education Acts already provide a full guarantee for the place of voluntary schools in this system, and the Government are firmly committed to sustaining that guarantee.
