HC Deb 16 January 1964 vol 687 cc56-7W
Mr. Warbey

asked the Minister of Education what progress has been made with the implementation in Great Britain of the resolution adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 10th December, 1948, calling upon all member nations to cause the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to be disseminated, displayed, read and expounded in schools and other educational institutions.

Sir E. Boyle

Like our predecessors in 1958, I and my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State for Scotland, drew specialattention to the Resolution on Human Rights on its 15th Anniversary last year by sending messages to local education authorities and schools. In addition our Departments' annual circulars on International Affairs in 1963 reminded the authorities and schools of the 15th Anniversary and included a reference to the educational and publicity material on the Declaration obtainable from the Council for Education in World Citizenship, which makes available annually to schools a selection of relevant material,including the text of the Declaration.
