HC Deb 08 March 1928 vol 214 cc1233-4

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether, seeing that in certain districts parents of children who are over 12 years of age and who reside more than three miles from a secondary school are not granted the option of choosing whether those children attend the local parish school or travel to the secondary school more than three miles distant, he will take steps to ensure that thin option is not denied in any case?

The LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. William Watson)

If I understand my hon. Friend's question aright, so much depends upon particular circumstances that a general reply could hardly fail to be misleading. Perhaps he will be good enough to let me have details of the cases he has in mind when I will look into them carefully and let him have the result.
