Dear Foreign and Commonwealth Office,

please confirm the details of the agreement or arrangements made in October 2016 between the FCO and the Italian Ambassador to London, Pasquale Terracciano with regards to the colllection of pupil language data in the school census, with reference to the BBC report: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-news-fro... .
