HC Deb 18 December 1952 vol 509 cc240-1W
92. Mr. G. Thomas

asked the Minister of Education to make a statement on the selection of pupils for grammar school education, in view of the report of the Bristol Institute of Education.

Miss Horsbrugh

The arrangements for the selection of pupils for secondary schools are primarily a matter for the local education authorities. They will, I am sure, consider carefully the suggestions made in this report, as well as the results of other research on the subject, as I myself am doing.
