§ 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.
