§ Mr. McCrindle
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science when he expects to complete a review of how English is taught in schools; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Rumbold
My right hon. Friend intends to appoint a high-level independent committee to recommend what school pupils should know about the English language. He hopes to announce the committee's composition and terms of reference shortly, and will look to it for an early report.
