HC Deb 10 February 1960 vol 617 c55W
Mr. Costain

asked the Minister of Education, in order that the recommendations of the Crowther Report may reach a larger public than is likely to buy and read the whole report, if he will publish the summary with graphs and statistics at a nominal price.

Sir D. Eccles

I sympathise with the purpose the hon. Member has in mind, but I hope it is largely met by the very wide and continuing Press publicity for the Report's main recommendations and by the extensive sales (almost 17,000) of the Report itself. The Report is very closely argued and might lose much by condensation. If however there were a specific demand for off-prints of certain parts of the Report this would certainly be considered.
