HC Deb 19 December 1963 vol 686 c244W
Mr. G. M. Thomson

asked the Minister of Education how far the Curriculum Study Unit is taking into account the need to meet the growing demand for studies in world affairs, as evidenced by conferences at all school levels and in training colleges.

Sir E. Boyle

The Curriculum Study Group is not considering studies in world affairs as a separate subject in the curriculum. In Examinations Bulletin No. 1, edited by the group on behalf of the Secondary Examinations Council, however, a number of suggestions were made relating to studies of modern affairs in the teaching of history, geography and modern languages.
