HC Deb 07 February 1980 vol 978 c291W
Mrs RenéeShort

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will seek to amend the Education Act 1944 to make it mandatory for all schools to provide health education programmes having regard to recommendations on this matter by the Select Committee on Expenditure, the Court report, the Mikes report and the Royal Commission on the National Health Service.

Dr. Boyson

No. The details of school curricula are matters for individual local education authorities and schools.
