HC Deb 10 March 1987 vol 112 c103W
Mr. Gerald Bowden

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether the Kingman committee of inquiry into English language teaching is inviting evidence; and if he will make a statement.

Mrs. Rumbold

Yes. The Kingman committee would welcome written evidence, particularly on what skills society and individuals need in oral and written communication, the nature of English language teaching in the different phases of schooling, and the implications for initial and in-service teacher training. My right hon. Friend hopes that anyone wishing to give evidence on these or other matters within the committee's terms of reference will write to the committee's secretary at Elizabeth House, York Road, London SE1 7PH, not later than 1 June 1987.
