§ Mr. Campbell-Savours
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if it is part of the official remit of OFSTED to ascertain from inspection whether schools are satisfying the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum. 
§ Mr. Byers
Inspectors evaluate and report on the extent of schools' compliance with statutory requirements, as required by the Framework for the Inspection of Schools. The Framework is determined by HM Chief Inspector of Schools. I have asked him to write to my hon. Friend and to place a copy of his letter in the Library.
