EDM 247: Retaining Turkish AS and A-Level Turkish

I have sponsored the 'Retaining Turkish AS and A-Level Turkish' EDM.

That this House believes that OCR'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.
