§ Mr. Ernie Ross
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what efforts his Department is making to encourage more girls to study science at school.
§ Mr. Alexander Fletcher
The Government have accepted the recommendation in the Munn report (HMSO 1977) that all school pupils in S3 and S4 should study science as part of their course. It is the responsibility of education authorities and individual teachers to ensure that all pupils receive suitable advice when making their course choices.
