Is my right hon. Friend aware that many of the people engaged in these projects on religious education are coming increasingly to the conclusion that the compulsory requirement for religious education and the agreed syllabus that goes with it is, at the moment, the biggest single obstacle to getting the sort of genuine syllabus for moral education that the Secretary of State has so often said he is so keen on?
Does the right hon. Lady appreciate that the views expressed by the hon. Member for Birmingham, Perry Barr (Mr. Christopher Price) are shared by quite a large number of those who have a very deep interest in this subject? But does she not feel that those who are at work on it, notably the Bishop of Durham's Committee, should be listened to before she makes any major changes?
