HC Deb 30 April 1930 vol 238 c198
8. Lieut.-Colonel ACLAND-TROYTE (for Lieut.-Colonel RUGGLES-BRISE)

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if his attention has been called to the lack of educational facilities for children of British subjects resident at Port Said; whether he is aware that there are schools for the children of French and Italian nationals but none for British children, who can only receive education if entered in one or other of these foreign schools; and whether he will take steps to provide a British school for British children?


I am aware that there is no school for British children at Port Said, but I regret that in the present financial conditions it is not practicable to impose any charge on the British taxpayer for such a purpose.
