HC Deb 24 June 1954 vol 529 c56W
77. Mr. Swingler

asked the Minister of Education if her attention has been drawn to the published report of the Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate on the General Certificate of Education: and if she will make a statement on the present standard of this examination.

Miss Horsbrugh

My attention has been drawn to this report. I look to the Secondary School Examinations Council to advise me on matters affecting school examinations, and I would prefer at this stage not to make a statement on any of the issues which the report raises.
