HC Deb 13 July 1972 vol 840 c404W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science why there is no classroom teacher on the committee of inquiry into the reading and use of English in schools.

Mrs. Thatcher

I appointed members of the Committee on the basis of the particular contribution they could be expected to make to the Inquiry. The head teachers on the Committee are themselves classroom teachers of considerable experience.
