History in Schools Debate- Transcript

http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201011/cmhansrd/cm120110/halltext/120110h0001.htm#12011042000001

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.
