HC Deb 23 November 1982 vol 32 c408W
Dr. Roger Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will set up an investigation into the difference in the standard of children's performance between the ages of 11 years and 15 to 16 years.

Mr. Michael Roberts

Standards of performance in mathematics and English have been investigated by the assessment of performance unit since 1978 and a number of reports have been published and placed in the Library.
