HC Deb 09 January 2001 vol 360 c517W
Mr. Soames

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment in which curriculum subjects truth, kindness, good manners and courage are taught. [144012]

Jacqui Smith

[holding answer 8 January 2001]: These are virtues which are a responsibility for parents to inculcate in their children. School subjects like RE, Citizenship and Personal, Social and Health education can reinforce this by teaching children the difference between right and wrong, as well as the importance of being good citizens.
