HC Deb 22 May 1978 vol 950 c430W
Mr. Kilfedder

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland whether the speech by Lord Melchett to the Coleraine Round Table in which he is quoted as saying that by eventually abolishing all methods of selection of 11-plus and so abolishing the divisive system of selecting a minority of children for special treatment at 11, the Government were only saying that all secondary schools should be equally good and should provide equal opportunities for all their pupils, means that the Government will not allow streaming of pupils by ability in comprehensive schools.

Mr. Carter
