Retaining Turkish AS And A-Level Turkish

EDM number 247 in 2015-16, proposed by Catherine West on 06/07/2015.
Categorised under the topic of Schools.

That this House believes that Edexcel's initial decision to discontinue the GCE AS and A-level Turkish examinations from 2017 is deeply regrettable; recognises that there are 100,000 Turkish speakers across the UK and that with over 63 million speakers worldwide it is one of the world's major languages; believes, given this context, that the GCE AS and A-level Turkish qualification should be retained; and calls on the Government to take steps to ensure that examination boards do offer AS and A-level Turkish.

This motion has been signed by a total of 14 MPs.
