HC Deb 30 November 1961 vol 650 cc81-2W
24. Sir J. Pitman

asked the Minister of Education if he will take steps to ensure that the teaching of history in secondary schools takes account of the concept of the European Market and is based on a world-wide, rather than a national, approach to world events.

Sir D. Eccles

In recent years school syllabuses have increased their emphasis on the international aspects of history including the Commonwealth and Europe. I hope this trend will continue.
