§ Mr. Greenway
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will direct the Ealing education authority under section 68 of the Education Act 1944 to take steps to reopen borough schools; and it- he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Dunn
The department has been monitoring the effects on educational provision in this area of the Ealing local education authority's dispute with NALGO. We understand that this dispute has now been settled and that the situation is returning to normal. Therefore the question of a direction does not arise.
