§ Mr. Hardy
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science (1) if head teachers are not now required to submit precise information in regard to educational provision under the 1989 Information Regulations; and why detailed questions are presented; (2) if he will advise head teachers that there is no need for them to provide particularly precise information when responding to the 1989 Information Regulations;
(3) what is his estimate of the time which head teachers will need to devote to provide a response to the 1989 Information Regulations concerning the submission of statistical information regarding educational provision in their schools;
(4) what is his policy on whether head teachers should respond with a broad brush when submitting information concerning educational provision under the 1989 Information Regulations.
