HC Deb 06 February 1979 vol 962 c113W
31. Mr. Scott

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what representations she has received in connection with her proposals to reform the system of examinations at 16-years plus.

Mrs. Shirley Williams

There has been widespread support for the Government's proposal. No major organisation has opposed in principle the introduction of a single system of examining at 16-plus.
