HC Deb 22 April 1971 vol 815 cc421-2W
48. Dame Irene Ward

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether she will appoint a committee of inquiry into the methods of sex education being made available to the schools, the system of lectures to be delivered by teachers provided by the Schools Council through money made available by the Nuffield Trust and the grants made by the Arts Council to provide special morning performances at the Royal Court Theatre for schoolchildren at schools under the Inner London Education Authority.

Mrs. Thatcher

I appreciate my hon. Friend's concern but I do not think that such a committee would be the best way of proceeding.
