HC Deb 01 April 1976 vol 908 c572W
Sir D. Walker-Smith

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will issue appropriate guidance to local education authorities defining the circumstances in which teachers may use pupils for the purpose of transmitting documents containing matter of controversial content and the limitations upon such activity.

Miss Margaret Jackson
