HC Deb 20 December 1956 vol 562 c206W
24. Mr. Moss

asked the Minister of Education whether he is aware of the substantial inaccuracy of selection of children at 11-plus; and what steps he is taking to improve the present methods of selection.

Sir D. Eccles

I do not accept the hon. Member's description of existing selection procedures, but it is the constant concern of local education authorities to make them as fair as they can. I shall continue to encourage practical experiments and to offer advice when I see occasion to do so.
