§ 31. Mr. GRIFFITHS
asked the Secretary of State for War whether a school for British officers' children in Cologne is to be closed on 8th April; and, if so, what is the reason for this?
§ Sir L. WORTHINGTON-EVANS
I understand that a private school for officers' children at Cologne will be closed at the end of the present term, owing to the withdrawal of certain services which it has hitherto enjoyed free of cost. Schools for officers' children are not provided at the expense of Army funds, and it has been decided that the privileges in question could not properly be continued to this school.
