§ 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.
