HC Deb 23 October 1989 vol 158 c322W
Sir Charles Morrison

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what resources are listed in the national curriculum for geography in relation to population.

Mrs. Rumbold

The national curriculum will not specify the use of particular resources in relation to any subject or topic. This is a matter for decision by schools and teachers.

The attainment targets and programmes of study for geography in the national curriculum are under consideration by a working group whose interim report is due to be submitted to my right hon. Friend by 31 October. I will arrange for a copy to be sent to my hon. Friend as soon as it is published.
