HC Deb 01 March 1993 vol 220 c16W
Mr. Luff

To ask the Secretary of State for Education what plans he has to change the training of teachers for the under-eights; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Forth

My right hon. Friend is considering reforms to the training of primary teachers, including possible changes to the training of teachers specialising in the early years of primary education. He intends that these reforms should be introduced in September 1994. Proposals will be issued for public consultation in a few weeks' time.
