History in Schools Debate- Transcript


The debate was very well attended- with particularly impressive contributions from Tristram Hunt and Paul Maynard, and an encouraging response from Schools Minister Nick Gibb.

I fully intend to continue the campaign to make history compulsory to 16, as the government’s Curriculum Review remains ongoing. I believe that there is broad support for the idea, both in Parliament and in the wider historical community, and I look forward to further demonstrating this support in the weeks and months to come.
