HC Deb 13 July 1972 vol 840 cc401-2W
41. Mr. Jessel

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether she will ask the working party on methods of learning to read, which she announced recently, to examine the merits of the inital teaching alphabet.

Mrs. Thatcher

The terms of reference of the committee are wide enough to enable it to study this subject and I think it probable that it will do so.
