§ Mr. Tilney
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will republish the figures for reading ability for 15-year-old boys and girls in the same form as that in HANSARD of 3rd June, 1964, covering the reading surveys of 1948, 1952, 1956 and 1961, but with the addition of the results for the most recent survey and with the small amendment to the figures of 1961 which were later recommended as preferable.
