Education (Schools) Bill — Abolition of assisted places scheme in England and Wales — 5 Jun 1997

Considered in Committee.

I beg to move amendment No. 7, in page 1, line 20, leave out '1996-97' and insert '1999-2000'.

The First Deputy Chairman of Ways and Means (Mr. Michael J. Martin):

With this, it will be convenient to discuss the following amendments: No. 29, in clause 2, page 1, line 22, leave out '1997-98' and insert '1999-2000'.

However, to bring that about, we would have to return to the bad old days of direction, which we had under previous Labour Governments. People would be told, "Because you live in this area, your children will attend that school," and there would be no question of choice.

Question put , That the amendment be made:--

The Committee divided: Ayes 138, Noes 353.
