HC Deb 02 March 1939 vol 344 cc1477-8W
Mr. R. Robinson

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education what steps have been taken by his Department to secure an alteration in the date of school certificate examinations in order to facilitate the spread-over of holidays?

Mr. Lindsay

I would refer my hon. Friend to the replies which I gave him on 3rd and 17th November last. As indicated in my reply to the hon. Member for the Consett Division of Durham (Mr. David Adams) on 9th February, the whole question will be reviewed by the Secondary School Examinations Council in the course of the next: few months.
