§ Mr. Pawsey
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he has received a copy of the confidential report on London schools which sets out examination results and subjects taken by children in the Inner London education authoritiy area; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Rumbold
My right hon. Friend has received a copy of the report on the school examination results in inner London for the year 1988.
The results are not good. I am sure that the new inner London local education authorities will give a high priority to improving them, and will be assisted in this by the Government's education reforms.
