§ 61. Mr. MARDY JONES
asked the President of the Board of Education whether he has had any representations from any local education authorities asking him to take steps to empower local education authorities to provide boots from educational funds, and that such expenditure be subject to the same conditions as are contained in the Education (Provisions of Meals) Acts; and whether he is prepared to ask Parliament for the necessary powers?
§ Mr. TREVELYAN
I have lately received representations to this effect from one local education authority. As at present advised, I am not prepared to propose legislation for this purpose.
