§ 45. Mr. DENMAN
asked the Prime Minister if he is aware of the growing concern of local education authorities at the delay in proceeding with the School Attendance Bill; and can he state when the Second Reading will be taken?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I am aware that local education authorities are anxious about the progress of the Education (School Attendance) Bill, but I can add nothing at present to what I have already said on this subject.
§ Mr. DENMAN
Will the Prime Minister assure the House that he will bear in mind the urgency of action while an atmosphere favourable to agreement on the religious controversy exists?
