HC Deb 10 February 1972 vol 830 c407W
42. Mr. McCrindle

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what studies she has made of machines which assist backward readers as an alternative to employing remedial teachers.

Mr. van Straubenzee

The only machines I know of are intended as forms of mechanical aids available to teachers, not as alternatives to them. Her Majesty's Inspectorate is familiar with the many kinds of teaching machines on the market.
