§ 38. Mr. Hollis
asked the Minister of Education whether he is aware of the grave shortage of scientific equipment in many schools, as a result of which pupils are hindered in their examination work; and what steps he is taking to remedy this defect.
§ Mr. Tomlinson
I am not aware of any general shortage of scientific equipment, though long delivery periods are quoted for some items.
§ Mr. Hollis
Has the attention of the right hon. Gentleman been called to a report of the Cambridge University Examination Syndicate, a body of some authority, which is very much alarmed about this problem?
