Specialist Schools And The Conduct Of Parliamentary Private Secretaries

EDM number 1146 in 2001-02, proposed by Chris Grayling on 17/04/2002.

That this House notes that the honourable Members for Wythenshawe and Sale East, Battersea, Blackpool South, West Lancashire, Wolverhampton North East and Milton Keynes South West, all serving as parliamentary private secretaries to Government ministers, have given their backing to the introduction of a Bill which would abolish Britain's grammar schools, abolish the ability of specialist schools to offer education to pupils with an aptitude in their specialism, in direct contradiction to the stated aims of the Government; applauds the role played by specialist and grammar schools in building educational excellence; and calls on the Government publicly to disown those who backed the proposal.

This motion has been signed by a total of 60 MPs.
