HC Deb 13 March 1957 vol 566 c193W
Mr. Owen

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Education if he is aware of the practice of some education authorities of publishing in the local Press the names of children for transfer to grammar schools at 11-plus; and whether he will examine this practice, with a view to having it discouraged because of its tendency to glamourise the effect of grammar school selection.

Sir E. Boyle

My noble Friend deprecates this practice, but he does not consider that it is a matter on which he should circularise local education authorities.
