HC Deb 10 May 1993 vol 224 c323W
Ms. Estelle Morris

To ask the Secretary of State for Education if he will provide a breakdown of the £750,000 her Department recently spent on advertising the Government's view on the testing of school children.

Mr. Forth

The campaign is providing information to parents about this summer's tests. It involves the production, printing and distribution of the leaflet -How is Your Child Doing at School?". The leaflet has been distributed to schools and its availability advertised in the national press. The total cost of the campaign has been estimated at £750,000 although the final cost will depend on the number of requests for further leaflets.
