§ 73. Mr. G. M. Thomson
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Education what consultations he has had with the Independent Television Authority regarding television programmes in schools.
§ Sir E. Boyle
None. My noble Friend has been kept informed by the Independent Television Authority about the proposal by Associated-Rediffusion Limited to undertake an experimental series of television programmes for schools. These arrangements do not require my noble Friend's formal approval, but he is of course concerned that any television programmes designed for schools should be of a kind which he and the school authorities can regard as acceptable on educational grounds.
