The Labour party had 'no intention of reintroducing bureaucratic rule from town halls' says The Times in its report (p9) on the shadow education secretary's speech yesterday to the Association of Heads of Grant-Maintained Schools.

David Blunkett hinted that his proposals would be based on the devolved management now enjoyed by local authority schools.

Education secretary Gillian Shephard said earlier, the paper reports, that the hostility to opt-out schools in Labour town halls and on the party's back benches would wreck the leadership's attempt at compromise.
