§ Mr. Proctor
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he has received any representations or proposals from the commission for Racial Equality concerning changes in the school curriculum with regard to ethnic minority pupils and the recommendations put forward by the Rampton-Swann committee in its report; and what response he has made to any such representations.
§ Dr. Boyson
The commission's views on these matters have been considered alongside the views of other interested bodies as part of the Department's recent consultations on the education of children from ethnic minority groups. My hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State has also discussed some of the commission's proposals with it. A formal response to the overall consultations will be made in due course.
