HC Deb 20 June 1927 vol 207 cc1485-6
57. Captain GROOKSHANK

asked the President of the Board of Education whether any steps are taken to give instruction to school children regarding the undesirability of leaving litter, such as paper, bottles, etc., lying about not only in the streets and public parks but also in the countryside generally?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Lord Eustace Percy)

I understand that local authorities take steps to impress upon the children at school the necessity for avoiding untidiness in public places, and the programmes of school journeys which have come to my notice all contain a reference to this subject, to which attention is also called on pages 10 and 66 of the Board's pamphlet "Notes on Camping," a copy of which I am sending my hon. and gallant Friend.
