HC Deb 01 March 1962 vol 654 c159W
8. Mr. Iremonger

asked the Minister of Education what steps he is taking to encourage the study of Russian in schools; and what consultations he and other Ministers concerned have had with the Vice-Chancellors of English, Welsh and Scottish universities on this subject.

Sir D. Eccles

Later this month I expect to receive the report of the Committee on the Teaching of Russian under the Chairmanship of Mr. Noel Annan. This Committee is well qualified to obtain the views of the universities.
