HC Deb 27 November 1959 vol 614 c74W
Mr. Woollam

asked the Minister of Education whether he will reconsider the present pass mark required in the General Certificate of Education "O" level examination in the light of the evidence which has been sent to him by the hon. Member for West Derby.

Sir D. Eccles

No. I am not prepared to encourage a lowering of the standard of pass in this examination. This is a complex question, and I have written more fully to my hon. Friend.
