asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science when he expects to hold consultations with teachers' representatives on the changes in the teaching of mathematics proposed in the recent report of Her Majesty's inspectors of schools.

Copies of the discussion document "Mathematics from 5 to 16" have been sent to all maintained schools and to a range of national bodies, including the teachers' associations. HMI has invited comments by the end of July 1985. I am sure that teachers, both individually and through their associations, will wish to respond to this invitation.
