To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he will publish the interim report of the national curriculum mathematics working group; and if he will make a statement.

I am publishing the interim report of the national curriculum mathematics working group today. I am grateful to the group for the work it has done to date, but hope for a more rapid rate of progress over coming months in its further work on attainment targets and programmes of study for mathematics. Copies of the report and of my response are being lodged in the Libraries of both Houses.
