§ Mr. Murphy
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales (1) how many representations he has received on the White Paper, "Choice and Diversity and the Education Bill"; and how many representations were made from(a) local education authorities, (b) teaching organisations and (c) others;
(2) if he will list, with names and addresses, those organisations and individuals who submitted representations to him over the White Paper, "Choice and Diversity and the Education Bill".667W
§ Sir Wyn Roberts
We have received some 300 representations on the White Paper "Choice and Diversity". A list, setting out the details of 81 of these, has been placed in the Library of the House. The list includes local education authorities and teaching organisations but does not include those governing bodies, headteachers, teachers, parents and members of the public who responded. It would not be appropriate to list such respondents, some of whom may not wish their names to be disclosed.
The list does not include those organisations which responded to the separate consultations on special educational needs and the proposed transfer of responsibility for the development of Welsh language classroom materials to the Curriculum and Assessment Authority for Wales (Awdurdod Cwricwlwm ac Asesu Cymru).
