HC Deb 01 May 1963 vol 676 cc105-6W
50. Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what action he has now taken as a result of the Annan Report on the teaching of Russian.

Mr. Noble

Arrangements have been made with the Scottish College of Commerce in Glasgow for an intensive course in Russian for teachers of other subjects; the initial course is due to begin in September and will last for nine months. I shall shortly be sending to education authorities and other school managers a circular dealing with this and certain other aspects of the teaching of Russian, and I shall let the hon. Member have a copy.
