§ Mr. Lidington
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if he will place in the Library a list of the schools and local education authorities which made representations to his Department or to the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority(a) supporting, or (b) opposing a revision of the test dates for Key Stages 2 and 3 in 2000. 
§ Jacqui Smith
The change was made in response to concerns from many headteachers, including the General Secretary of the National Association of Headteachers who has welcomed it. Since the change the Department and the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority have received a total of 116 representations opposed to the change of test dates. 18 schools and local education authorities wrote to support the change. Since many of the schools expressed their views in confidence, it would be wrong to name them.
