HC Deb 08 June 1967 vol 747 c241W
31. Mr. Kenneth Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he will seek powers to control the standards of examination for O and A level certificates so as to establish an equal standard by the various boards concerned.

Mrs. Shirley Williams

The Schools Council for the Curriculum and Examinations acts on behalf of my center hon. Friend as central co-ordinating authority for secondary school examinations and considers among things the difficult question of establishing comparability of standards between the examinations of the various boards.
