My office reviews the &lsquo;Questions unanswered after 10 working days&rsquo; in <em>House of Lords Business </em>every day. As soon as a question appears in this section of <em>House of Lords Business</em>, my office contacts the relevant department&rsquo;s Parliamentary Team, and they remain in contact with the Parliamentary Team and the Minister&rsquo;s Private Office until the question is answered. <br><br>I have also recently taken the opportunity to discuss the need for timely answers with members of the front bench in this House.</p><p> </p> more like this

The Government does not believe that it is appropriate for the national curriculum to set out how teachers should teach, or how they should structure their school day. The national curriculum has been slimmed down to allow teachers more flexibility to use their professionalism and expertise to create lessons that really inspire and engage their pupils, and help them to develop deeper knowledge and understanding of materials.</p> more like this
