HC Deb 25 June 1991 vol 193 cc456-7W
Sir Michael McNair-Wilson

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will take powers to enable himself to become involved in the problems of inner London education authorities if such a request is made to him by one third of the elected councillors.

Mr. Eggar

My right hon. and learned Friend already has powers to direct any local education authority to operate reasonably and to carry out its statutory responsibilities; and in addition has the power to approve the management structure of, and staff appointments to, the inner London education authorities.
