Written Answers — House of Lords: Schools: Europe Day (28 Feb 2005)

Lord Filkin: The department has no plans to organise a national celebration of Europe Day in schools. Children gain most from special events which are organised by schools themselves to support and contribute to the learning experience. We encourage schools to do this, as I pointed out in my previous Answer.

Education Bill [HL] (24 Feb 2005)

Lord Filkin: My Lords, this group of amendments is tabled in response to the representations made by the right reverend Prelate in Committee. I am pleased that we are now able to table government amendments to meet requirements set out by him and others and to provide for other faith groups. The amendments will enable the Secretary of State, for England, and the National Assembly, for Wales, to specify...

Education Bill [HL] (24 Feb 2005)

Lord Filkin: My Lords, I am happy to give that assurance. I am strongly advised that "consult" is legally stronger and that the measures that we have tabled will achieve what the right reverend Prelate seeks: that the relevant diocesan authority will have a good and proper influence on those issues. That is exactly what we want to achieve.

Education Bill [HL] (24 Feb 2005)

Lord Filkin: My Lords, I fear that this will be a matter on which we shall not agree. That is exactly because the Government's policy is that increased choice of new providers, when there is to be a new school either as a result of an increase in the need for places or as the product of a reorganisation, is in the interest of parents and pupils. That is the explicit reason why with the Bill we have...

Education Bill [HL] (24 Feb 2005)

Lord Filkin: My Lords, I broadly agree with the noble Baroness, Lady Walmsley, that it is essential that the Secretary of State listens to representations made by the local authority in the circumstances that she described. I sought to indicate as much in Committee and I am happy strongly to reaffirm that commitment now. It is good policy, good practice and, to buttress the point, any Secretary of State...

Education Bill [HL] (24 Feb 2005)

Lord Filkin: moved Amendment No. 75: Page 39, line 22, at end insert— "(3A) Before publishing a notice under this section, the local education authority must consult any prescribed persons, and such other persons as appear to the authority to be appropriate, about such of the relevant matters as may be prescribed or (if none are prescribed) about such of the relevant matters as appear to the authority...

Education Bill [HL] (24 Feb 2005)

Lord Filkin: My Lords, the Government are tabling these amendments in the light of discussions in Committee about consultation on proposals for new schools. Both the noble Lord, Lord Hanningfield, and the noble Baroness, Lady Sharp, sought reassurances that local people would be consulted about proposals for new schools. I undertook to consider the matter. I refer the House to the illustrative regulations...

Education Bill [HL] (24 Feb 2005)

Lord Filkin: My Lords, I shall try to do the impossible of being fuller and clearer, and succinct at the same time. These are not necessarily simple issues. I think there is a broad agreement that we do not wish to return to the old days when proposals were decided either by the Secretary of State or simply by the local authority itself. We have set up a system of local decision-making, designed to enable...

Education Bill [HL] (24 Feb 2005)

Lord Filkin: My Lords, to one extent I would argue that the fact that the powers have never been used shows that they are very effective powers. It is desirable that they are there in the cupboard as a long-stop, ensuring that people pay attention in the rare circumstances when school rationalisation might be at risk of being fudged or ducked because of local political difficulties. The noble Lords, Lord...
