§ Mr. Clappison
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if the textbook entitled Minds and Machines—Britain 1750–1900, published by Longman, is an approved text for Key Stage 3 of the National Curriculum. 
§ Jacqui Smith
It has always been for governing bodies and teachers to decide which books best meet the requirements of the National Curriculum in their school.
