HC Deb 15 June 1972 vol 838 c359W
37. Mr. Goodhart

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what discussions she is having about metrication and school textbooks.

Mrs. Thatcher

My Department's general advice on the impact of metrication on school examinations and curricula is being revised. I hope that those responsible for the provision of textbooks will continue to be guided by that advice. If there are any special problems, my Department is, of course, prepared to discuss them.
