HC Deb 11 December 1967 vol 756 cc53-4W
Mr. Silvester

asked the Secretary of Sate for Education and Science how many of Her Majesty's Inspectors are involved in the work of encouraging curriculum development in readiness for the raising of the school-leaving age.

Miss Bacon

All Her Majesty's Inspectors with secondary school assignments are involved in the context of their normal relationships with schools and local education authorities. In addition, Her Majesty's Inspectors are from time to time engaged, sometimes in conjunction with the Schools Council, on specific assignments connected with the development of the curriculum in preparation for raising the school leaving age.
