To ask Her Majesty’s Government which faith schools have reached an agreement with Ofqual on redactions to questions in science examinations on grounds of religious sensitivity; whether they will place details of any such redactions in the Library of the House; and whether they intend to refer to the Children’s Commissioner the question of whether such redactions will have negative impacts on the pupils concerned.
