HC Deb 18 July 2000 vol 354 c127W
Mr. Öpik

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what progress his Department has made with the production of a resource pack for Holocaust Memorial Day; when the pack will be made available; and if he will make a statement. [130283]

We are working with the Home Office and key organisations involved in Holocaust Education to develop the resource pack. It will comprise guidance and materials for schools, suggesting activities for teachers and pupils to follow, for example in classroom activities and assemblies, and it will be available in autumn this year.

In June, we launched a teaching pack and guidelines to accompany the Anne Frank Declaration and to support primary and secondary school teachers in their work on Education for Citizenship and the Teaching of Democracy.
