§ Mr. Maurice Macmillan
asked the Minister of Education what proportion of the curriculum of, and of the books used in, secondary grammar and secondary modern schools is devoted to the study of civics; what subjects this study includes; and whether the structure and financing of industry are included.
§ Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd
I have no statistics about curricula and text books. Preparation for citizenship is most often provided through the medium of a number of subjects—for example, History, Geography and English. Some schools also include Current Affairs as a subject in the curriculum, but I have no precise information about the extent to which the structure and financing of industry are studied.
