HC Deb 24 May 1994 vol 244 cc132-3W
Mr. Morgan

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what consultation he has had with the chairman of the Welsh Joint Education Committee in relation to irregularities in the conduct of the 1994 GCSE examinations and access given to the candidates to the examination papers before time; if the school was in the state sector; what guidelines he has issued with respect to disciplinary proceedings in relation to the teacher concerned; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Redwood

None. The school was in the state sector. The WJEC has investigated this matter thoroughly and is satisfied that a change to the current instructions about the security of examination papers which it issues to all examination centres, is not required.

The matter of disciplinary proceedings in relation to an individual teacher, is primarily a matter for the school concerned.
