HC Deb 06 February 1969 vol 777 c146W
Mr. Longden

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many colleges of education have a reading consultant on their staff to establish or advise upon advanced reading techniques.

Mrs. Shirley Williams

Staff in the education and English departments of colleges of education would be familiar with current thought and research on advanced reading techniques. It would be for the academic boards of each college to determine whether in any case the services of a specialist consultant are required.
