HC Deb 07 March 1988 vol 129 c15W
Mr. Fallon

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what recent representations he has received regarding subjects outside the core curriculum.

Mr.. Rumbold

Since the Second Reading of the Education Reform Bill on 1 December, over 800 letters have been received commenting on the Government's proposals for a national curriculum. A number of these have mentioned subjects other than those defined as core and other foundation subjects in the Bill.
