I must make one comment about your education correspondent's report of my recent speech to the National Association of Head Teachers which appeared in your paper on Tuesday 26th May. In his report, Mr. Bruce Kemble states that I referred to certain pupils. and here I quote his words, “who were beyond help” . I must make it absolutely clear that at no stage in my speech did I use the words or anything remotely resembling them.
