HC Deb 12 July 1928 vol 219 c2435
19. Mr. HARRIS

asked the President of the Board of Education whether His Majesty's Inspectors of Schools have recognised as educational visits the attendance of parties of school children at the Naval and Military Tournament, London, and the Royal Air Force Display, Hendon; whether such visits have taken place this year or last year; and whether the Board have received any representations on the subject?


The approval of educational visits by public elementary school children during school hours is given by His Majesty's Inspectors under Article 21 (a) of the Code and no record of such visits is kept in my Department. As regards the last part of the question, I have received representations on the subject of attendance at the Royal Air Force Display.


Was the representation for or against the teachers?


The representation which I received from one set of people was against.
