Oral Answers to Questions — Education – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 2nd July 1959.
asked the Minister of Education in view of recent discussions, what further arrangements he now proposes to implement in order to meet the needs and desires of Free Church families and representatives in areas where the only available school belongs to the Church of England, or whether such arrangements are left entirely to negotiations between Anglican and Free Church bodies.
After discussion with my right hon. Friend, representatives of the Free Churches and of the Church of England are examining how they can work even more closely together over religious education generally and in particular over the problem of single school areas. My right hon. Friend will keep in touch with them and give them any help he can.
Has any different proposal been made for the representation of Free Church interests on local management committees?
I would ask the hon. Gentleman to look at the speech which my right hon. Friend made yesterday in the debate, which covered this whole subject very fully.
