HC Deb 29 June 1995 vol 262 c793W
Mrs. Fyfe

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what representations he has had on the catchment areas for schools. [29799]

Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

As with other aspects of the education service, representations are received from time to time on issues in relation to school catchment—or delineated—areas. However, while in certain cases the approval of the Secretary of State is required before a catchment area may be changed, catchment areas are primarily a matter for education authorities.
