The testing of pupils is a matter for the discretion of local education authorities and schools, but they are in general ready to accept each others' assessments of pupils' abilities and aptitudes. These assessments are not normally confined to the results of intelligence tests. Other factors are taken into account.
Does not the hon. Gentleman realise that they are not readily accepted and that the different bases on which these tests are made make it very difficult to accept them? Will the hon. Gentleman go further into this matter?
